Music To Inspire!

"Beautiful music is the art of the prophets that can calm the agitations of the soul; it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us."
~Martin Luther

Throughout the holidays and now going back to school, I had almost forgotten all about "Music To Inspire" posts, but lately I've remembered some really inspiring music to share with you all and I'm going to try and make "Music To Inspire" more regular from now on Lord willing. Music To Inspire will be taking on a few minor changes. Earlier on, I had confined "Music To Inspire" only to movie soundtracks, but now, as much as a I simply LOVE epic movie soundtracks, I've decided to also share classical music and hymns (with lyrics if they have any). I hope you enjoy that, and are truly blessed. For today's Music To Inspire, I want to share a few violin adaptions to movie soundtracks, done by a lady on YouTube called Taylor. She plays the violin really beautifully, here are some of the videos.

A violin version of May It Be by Enya from 
the Lord of the Rings movie. It is one of my favourite movie songs ever, 
and Taylor's adaption is really beautiful...

A violin adaption of the Braveheart movie music theme
 (Disclaimer: I have not watched the film, 
though my sister has read the book which this film is based on, Scottish Chiefs)
... beautifully done!

This is from the Titanic film, a very sad piece and played on the violin so movingly.
(Disclaimer: I haven't watched this film,
and have heard that it has some themes)

League of Legends theme song violin adaption. 
This is truly amazing,  Taylor recorded each different part of that piece 
and then blended them so beautifully together. 
(Disclaimer: I have not watched this film,
nor do I know anything of it or recommend it)

Well, that is it for now. To view more of Taylor's violin music, go to ViolinTay, her YouTube channel. I hope you enjoyed this collection for today's Music To Inspire!
God bless.
