The Fight: [Quenya] Voice Actor(s): Camden Jenkins

Cuiva Olórin
Nárendur
Tira nottolya
Tulta tuolya
An mauya mahtië
Ter oiomornië
Ter ondicilyar.
Mettanna.
Nurunna!

Awake Olórin
Servant of fire
Face your foe
Summon forth your strength
For you must fight
Through endless dark
Through chasms of stone.
To the end.
To the death!


Evenstar: [Sindarin] Voice Actor(s): Fiona McNeal

Ú i vethed nâ i onnad.
Si boe ú-dhanna.
Ae ú-esteli, esteliach nad.
Estelio han, estelio han, estelio,
estelio han, estelio veleth.
Esteliach nad, estelio han.

It’s not the end, it is the beginning.
You mustn’t falter now.
If you don’t trust it, trust something.
Trust this, trust this, trust,
Trust this, trust love.
You trust something, trust this.


Entmoot: [Sindarin] Voice Actor(s): Camden Jenkins

Naur vi eryn,
lanc i dalaf.
Mathach vi geven?
Nostach vi ‘wilith?
Mâb le i nagor,
Bâd gurth vi ngalad firiel.
Dorthach vi mar han?
Dagrathach go hain?

The woods are burning,
the ground lies bare.
Do you feel it in the earth?
Can you smell it in the air?
The war is upon you,
Death moves in the fading light.
Are you part of this world?
Will you join their fight?


Breath of Life: [Sindarin] Voice Actor(s): Fiona Jallings

Uich gwennen na ‘wanath ah na dhín.
An uich gwennen na ringyrn ambar hen.
Boe naid bain gwannathar,
Boe cuil ban firitha.
Boe naer gwannathach…

You are not bound to loss and silence.
For you are not bound to the circles of this world.
All things must pass away,
All life is doomed to fade.
Sorrowing you must go…


The Ents: [Sindarin] Voice Actor(s): Camden Jenkins

Rithannen i geven
thangen i harn
na fennas i daur
ôl dûr ristannen
eryn echuiannen
i ngelaidh dagrar
ristar thynd, cúa tawar
dambedir enyd i ganed
si linna i ‘waew trin ‘ylf
Isto i dur i chuiyl
i ngelaidh dagrar

Earth shakes
Stone breaks
The forest is at your door
The dark sleep is broken
The woods have awoken
The trees have gone to war
Roots rend, wood bends
The Ents have answered the call
Through branches now the wind sings
Feel the power of living things
The trees have gone to war


Haldir’s Lament: [Quenya] Voice Actor(s): Eve Haegele

Ar sindarnóriello mornië caita,
Ar ilyë tier undulávë lumbulë…

And from a grey country lies darkness,
And all roads down-licked the clouds…
