Title: WoW Cinematic Lyrics
Post by: Michael B. on December 21, 2004, 10:53:29 AM
I just wanted to say, I LOVE the music you've done, and was curious if you have the lyrics for the cinematic of World of Warcraft.  That is one of my favorite songs now, and listen to "A Call to Arms" and that one all the time.  (I should also mention I'm a soundtrack buff.  John Williams is probably my favorite, but with you mentioning that you might do film music, all the better!  (I am actually going to be applying for USC or BYU film school soon.)

I guess you already have the lyrics to Call to Arms eh?


Title: Thanks Michael!

Thanks Michael!

The WoW Intro movie lyrics are pretty much Latin, but certainly not grammatically correct! It is basically a collection of images that I thought was appropriate to the Warcraft saga, without regard to sentence structure. There are references to things like battle, struggle, loyalty, and honor throughout the text. Because they aren't coherent sentences, a direct translation would sound very odd! Also, I took some liberties in the sound of the syllables in a few places to make some of the phrases flow better. I figured that language has probably developed a little differently in the World of Warcraft, so why not :)

Hmm. Well, I am not very good at discerning texts at the best of times, but in a musical context I find it even more confusing. However, given that I have been unable to find the published lyrics for the World of WarCraft cinematic music, I have been trying to tanscribe it myself.

It is pretty much wrong, but I was hoping Jason might be able to point me in the right direction with my errors, if he isn't allowed to actually state what they are.  :)

Like I said, this is a pretty atrocious effort on my part (since I am not good with voices), so try to hold back your laughter (at least when posting).

I have only done the first part, from when we first see the dwarf, until the night elf starts running:

corli terre, sabutare,

coa presto, matue,

fori terro, ventu safe

fenlere relari, coli coeli oa,

colare . . .



Like I said, it's not very accurate, but it's an attempt. Can anyone point out any corrections?


Title: Rough translation

Quote from: "Sylvos"
Okay, for those fans who haven't got the lyric to 'A Call To Arms', I post it here. I can say it by heart now! I hope that they're correct. Enjoy!

Gloria
Honorifice
Pralium Facio
Animus
Gradior Quo
Prodo,

In Excelsis
Precedo
Bellator
Decerte
Adversa
Incurro
Invadoria

Desideratus Fatum!
Desideratus  Bellum!

I came here wondering if I could find rough translations to the vocals in the WoW cinimatic music, but found there really aren't any.  But in the process I came across this post and thought I might have something to add.

When "A Call to Arms" came out with the War3 trailer, they included a rough translation of the choral part.  I want to say it was in a text file with the zipped movie, but it might have been posted somewhere on Blizzard or Jason's site.   It's a good thing too, because using a latin dictionary won't get you anywhere looking up each word out of context (don't get me wrong - I love it!)

Here it is in it's original form:

*****

Quasi-psuedo-Latin lyrics:

Gloria
Honorifice
Pralium Facio

Animus
Gradior Quo
Prodo

In Excelsis
Precedo
Bellator
Decerte
Adversa
Incurro
Invadoria

Desideratus Fatum
Desideratus Bellum

-----------------------------
Badly translated lyrics:

Glory
Honor
Join the battle

Courage
By marching into death
We are delivered

Excellence
In the highest
The Warrior
Will fight to the finish
Against all opposition
Attack!
Invade!

Welcome to destiny
Welcome to War

There are other lyrics later in the music, but I can't transcribe it, it's too difficult to understand

I'm pretty sure of the words "salutare" and "ventus acre". Other than that, I would just be writing down random words...I must say though, I have been wondering about these lyrics for a while now, but more so for the Arthus' betrayal cutscene lyrics. The only ones I can make out from that are Gloria, Honorifice, Maleficus (I think).

Does someone knows what's the name of the Soundtrack? cause i want to download it.

Other music from WoW that i like:

EnchantedForest1-5
Angelic
Stormwind_intro-moment
sacred2
NightMountain03
NightMountain04

(srry about my language, but i'm from Romania :D)

"Salutare" means in romanian "Hi", but i don't think the word is in romanian :?

We cannot sanction the advertising of illegal means of acquiring Jason's music, so if you purchase a copy of World of WarCraft, you can use an MPQ editor to extract the music from the game, as long as you do not distribute the extracted music.

As far as I understand the end user licence agreement, anyway.

The MPQ archive doesn't contain the trailer soundtrack. :(( :cry:

Hmm, that's a really good point.

Damn, it's seems that the classic Blizzard music syndrome has struck again: if you don't have the Collector's Edition accompanying CD, then you can't legally listen to all of the music. (http://forums.samods.org/html/emoticons/sniff.gif)

I have an idea . . . let's all meet in Irvine -- it's picketting time! (http://forums.samods.org/html/emoticons/lol.gif)

Cant he PM me, or email or something, yahoo ID? pls  :cry: . All the games i own aren't original, they are donw. using oDC, and i dont think it matters, if i sends me an email containing the name of it. And one more thing, besides the Wow trailer, i can hear the music in a TV commercial about Startrek (in Romania). I'm really desperate to hear the full music without the sounds in the trailer.

On every game i install (that contains License Agreement, bla bla bla), i don't read the License Agreement... too much to read... besides i can't fully understand it 'cause it's in english :D

Melda do you know the name of the soundtrack?

Something that you don't know about me: I'm just a kid, 14 years old.

(i hope you understand what i wrote  :D )

Appocalyyps3: I think you misunderstand what I was trying to say.

It would be illegal to promote or encourage in any way the unlawful distribution of protected content, and while that might not concern you as an individual, this web site cannot afford to be held responsible for endorsing such illicit activities.

The best I can do is recommend that you find a copy of the World of WarCraft Collector's Edition accompanying soundtrack CD, and look for the track Seasons of War, which is the trailer/opening cinematic music.

Sorry I could not be of further help.

But that was all i asked: The Name of it, wich is Seasons of War.

Finnaly i found it. Man I live the song very much, i donwloaded using oDC, and also the other soundtracks (looks like i didn't need to buy it  8)  :wink:)

coming back to the lyrics of the warcraft 3 song "call to arms" i have to say that i dont know if the posted lyrics are somehow official but i think they re wrong in a couple of words and the translation.

i ll try make a guess :




Gloria (glory)
Honorifice bellium facio (honoring those who make war)

Animus (courage)
Bellium quod prodo (the war which delivers (us))

In Excelsis (??)(this is the word from the other translation but i dont hear such thing..maybe i m wrong though)

Precedo (to precede)
Bellator (the warrior)
Decerto (fight to the finish)
Defensa(re) (to defend vigorously)
Incurro (to raid/attack)
Invado (to seize/usurp)
(Gloria) (glory)

Desideratus Fatum (we want (our) destiny)
Desideratus Bellum (we wish for war)


Title: Genre of the Music

Hi all,

I like Call To Arms a lot. I like this kind of music but I don't know what kind of music is this.

Please if anyone can tell me what is the genre of this kind of music ?

Hello nice people, I'm new around here as I found this forum while searching for WoW's mucic artist :).
Let me wave a huge hi and bravo to Jason first, for the great emotion his music makes me feel. It's not so frequent in these fast-foodish musical creation days we live in. Again, be thanked deeply, sir.

I too am interested in the challenge to find out or better say , guess what the "seasons of war" lyrics are. Indeed, it will be harder than "A call to Arms" because of a much more present orchestral background.
Anyway, I gave it a try and unearthed my old latin dictionnary (keeping in mind what Jason himsel said earlier in that post about grammatical inaccuracy and such).

Here are my guesses for the first part :

1 *****
Prolicere (could be the infinitive form of prolicio, ere verb which means to seduce, tempt, entice, lure)

or

Pro bitere (from bīto, (baeto, bēto), ĕre = to go, to march)

2 *****
salutare

Could be an infinitive form of saluto, āre which have many meanings : to salute, greet, welcome, (more rarely) to say farewell and even to worship (gods)
Could also be a as in salutaris, e : which/who gives health, useful, favorable, which/who cures, which/who saves and even The savior(s).
     
3 *****
Quo aggressio battuere (to fight (back ? = repell ? or to fight for ?) the assault)

or

Quoad pretio battuere (to fight till the price/reward)

All this leaves us with many possibilities (and thus the mystery still is thick ;) ). Words following these first ones are even harder to guess, I will eventually post my feeling about them if I think it's worth it.

Any comments welcomed, musical Sherlocks :D (but I'm afraid that if Jason doesn't give us any clue, this will be tough hehe)

Kind regards from France (oh and please forgive my ugly english !)

hehehe... I'm impressed to see this topic is common among fans. It seems that some will not be grounded until they got the lyrics, full right in front of them.  :)

I still don't have a clue what makes it a big deal for Jason or Blizzard to give us the lyrics though.  :roll:

For Jason? He could potentially be sued for copyright infringement.

For Blizzard? They're just paranoid, as all (most) game companies are. :P

But yes, I would dearly love to know what the lyrics are . . . however that attempt there is the most promising I have come across so far! :)

Post by: Sylvos on November 03, 2006, 01:47:39 PM
Yup, you got it right bud. Though I can't see what makes it a viloation of the companies rights when you give those somewhat meaningless lyrics out. (No offense Jason, Just meant, it's not something that can be used to do something else... It's just... Choir lyrics!!)

Ah well... right, right... No can do. I agree with ya Melda, that attempt is indeed the most promising one so far.  :wink:

I need to get a copy of "A Call to Arms", so I can take a crack at it; it seems like an entertaining challenge.  Does anyone know if its anywhere in the Warcraft III MPQ/files, or online for download, or where I might get it?  If its only on the CD, any ideas where to start looking for that CD (Don't think I can afford any collector's editions of games, at the moment, unfortunately).

I can look at the above words, though, and give a crack at translating, from the little bit of high-school level Latin II I've done so far this year.  I do know, though, that 'Animus' is mind, spirit, and that the plural (animi) can also mean courage.  To my knowledge, though, 'Animus' only means mind or spirit.

Another comment is on 'Honorifice bellium facio': Isn't the Latin term for war 'bellum'?  Or is bellium just an ending I don't know, yet?  I know 'bellum' (plural 'belli') is a neuter noun meaning war, and several of the various case endings, but that's it.

Well, if you guys can successfully pull the words out, I can help translate them.  I know Jason didn't intend any grammar, but there's still grammar inherent in the actual words in Latin.
