First, a link to some of my stuff. I regularly trawl Deviant Art for images I think could be useful for a DnD game, and I've gathered up a pretty sizable collection of stuff. (I can't draw a straight line to save my life, so to make it absolutely clear, none of this is actually mine. I'm just a collector, and any credit should go to the actual artists.) Characters, Monster, Scenery, and Misc. Props.
Next, a request. My players are currently climbing a rather tall tower. At the top, there will be a boss who is, among other things, a Dirgesinger (Libris Mortis: Book of Bad Latin). If possible, I would like to have an actual recording to go with the description of music. Thus far, I haven't had much luck. So, if anyone could direct me to something, I'd be much obliged. Here's what I need:
Focus on a male singer
A song that evokes grief, sadness, and loss
A deep (bass or baritone) voice
A projective quality, something that one would hear from a distance
A single voice, or at least no female vocals
Minimal or zero instrumental parts. (Bard magic could conceivably be used to to fill this in, so that's a lesser issue)
So far, I'm leaning back and forth between two options. Most likely right now is a link to this humble video. His voice (though very nice) is not quite as deep as I want, and the chant doesn't really evoke grief. I've also considered using Red Water (Christmas Mourning) by Type O Negative. (I would provide a link, but I think that would violate forum rules. It shouldn't be hard to find looking for oneself.) It evokes all the right emotions, but the vocals are more whispered or muttered than projected, and it has a heavy instrumental focus. Plus, I suspect at least one of the players might recognize it.
