Karas’ Speech

Prospero's Speech

Prospero's Speech

I like a lot of Loreena McKennitt songs, but they don’t tend to lend themselves to anime music videos … until I saw the first DVD of Karas.

And I actually finished editing this one several months ago, then it took me this long to want to fix the flash-frames and actually get it online. Totally missed the Project A-Kon music video contest deadline, but I have completed a music video this year, so at least that’s something.

Thanks to Kentobean for the DVD.

And now my charms are all o’erthrown
And what strength I have’s mine own
Which is most faint; now t’is true
I must be here confined by you

But release me from my bands
With the help of your good hands
Gentle breath of yours my sails
Must fill, or else my project fails,
Which was to please.

Which was to please.
Now I want spirits to enforce, art to enchant
And my ending is despair,
Unless I be relieved by prayer

Which pierces so that it assaults
Mercy itself and frees all faults
As you from crimes would pardon’d be
Let your indulgence set me free.
