    Default Noir - Canta per me

    This lyric currently has a passage that is completely misunderstood (probably due to the heavy accent of the singer). The transcription is:

    a noi si schiude il ciel
    volano al raggio

    This doesn't make any sense, as the current translator notes - al raggio (to the ray) is nonsensical.

    The actual transcription should be "volano al agio" - which can be translated "fly to your rest." This actually makes sense with the rest of the song.

    Here is the link:

    But the official lyrics seem to suggest that it is indeed "volano al raggio".

    The Japanese translation given on that same page has

    リラを奏で、死の聖歌を歌っておくれ
    天は開き、私達は光の中へ飛び去ろう

    which roughly translated into:

    Play your lyre and sing for me a hymn of death.
    As the heavens open up, let's fly into that light.



    Basically, the two of them will die and ascend to heaven shrouded in the holy light. I think it makes sense to me. Unless you can provide a reputable source that says it should be agio instead of raggio, I'm afraid your correction can't be accepted.

    Now that the song's been brought up, though, the translation could use some tidying up. The English grammar is a little questionable.

    Sure--translating Italian-language songs of Japanese origin seems to be my niche. I'll probably get to it sometime this weekend; watch this space.

    Can't believe a song as famous as Canta per me hasn't got a decent t/l up here all this time...

    Which may go for many other legacy submissions I guess.

    Yeah, I think there's a certain number of songs from well-known older series that have not-so-great translations sticking around through inertia, probably. (And now I sort of want to watch Noir again.)

    Anyway, here's my re-translation:

    Sing farewell for me
    That sweet sound
    Of days past
    Always remember me

    Life of love,
    Beloved of my heart,
    O, joy of my soul,
    Sing softly...

    Temper your lyre and sing
    The hymn of death
    The sky opens to us
    And we fly into the light

    Life of love,
    Beloved of my heart,
    O, joy of my soul,
    Sing farewell...

    Are there no diacritics in the translit? It's Italian so there should be...

    As far as I can tell, no--it just happens not to use any words that would need them.
