T?ls ce?š / Long Road (2010)
State Choir LATVIJA, conductor M?ris Sirmais, composer ?riks Ešenvalds

(The work isn’t as long as this video so you might want to stop it when you reach the applause.)

I love you night and day as a star in the distant sky. And I mourn for this one thing alone — that to love, our lifetime was so short. A long road leads to heaven’s shining meadow And never could I reach its end. But a longer road leads to your heart which to me seems distant as a star.
