The Protomen – Light up the Night

The Protomen is an American rock band best known for composing original concept albums loosely based on the popular video game series Mega Man. The Protomen have achieved a cult following thanks, in part, to an active and vocal internet fan base, intensely theatrical live performances, and a heavy touring regimen.

“Light up the Night” is featured in Act II: The Father of Death, the second album by indie rock band The Protomen, and the follow-up to the band’s self-titled debut. The album also revisits the Mega Man-inspired rock opera concept from the band’s first album, and functions as a prequel to the first release, focusing on the relationship between Thomas Light and Albert Wily before Wily’s takeover of the city that functions as the story’s primary setting.

On September 1st, 2009, the album’s track list, cover art, and full title were revealed (previously, the band had referred to the album simply as Act II). The album was released a week later, on September 8th. The group has stated that they were largely influenced by the 1984 movie Streets of Fire.


Elfen Lied – Lilium

“Lilium” is the hymnal-like opening theme for the Elfen Lied anime, where it serves an important role in several episodes.

The lyrics are based around the Biblical passages in Psalms, and the Epistle of James, and the Renaissance hymn, “Ave Mundi Spes Maria”, which are sung in Latin. The opening and full version is performed by Kumiko Noma. Lilium is composed by MOKA. MOKA is a two-person musician group that consists of Yukio Kondo and Kayo Konishi. They jointly arranged the lyrics and composed it. The anime director Mamoru Kanbe made a sole request to MOKA that the opening theme should be a religious music and this was the background why MOKA chose the lyrics from the Biblical texts etc. Kayo Konishi explains the reason why MOKA chose Latin lyrics as follows. While she studied at a mission school she sang hymns in Latin and she liked the sounds that the language had. So she wanted to make the opening theme “Lilium” like a contemporary Gregorian hymn.

Original Latin Lyrics:

Os iusti meditabitur sapientiam,
Et lingua eius loquetur indicium.

Beatus vir qui suffert tentationem,
Quoniam cum probates fuerit accipiet coronam vitae.

Kyrie, fons bonitatis
Kyrie, ignis divine, eleison

O quam sancta, quam serena
quam benigma, quam amoena esse Virgo creditur
O quam sancta, quam serena, quam benigma, quam amoena
O castitatis lilium

Kyrie, fons bonitatis
Kyrie, ignis divine, eleison

O quam sancta, quam serena
quam benigma, quam amoena esse Virgo creditur
O quam sancta, quam serena, quam benigma, quam amoena
O castitatis lilium
