    Each adiemus album is a collection of song-length pieces featuring harmonised vocal melody against an orchestra background. There are no lyrics as such, instead the vocalists sing syllables and 'words' invented by jenkins. However, rather than creating musical interest from patterns of phonemes (as in scat singing, or in numerous classical and crossover compositions), the language of adiemus is carefully stylised so as not to distract the listener's attention from the pitch and timbre of the voice. Syllables rarely end in consonants, for example. In this respect it is similar to japanese and several other languages. The core concept of adiemus is that the voice should be allowed to function as nothing more than an instrument, an approach that has become something of a trend in recent choral writing (compare, for example vangelis's score for the film 1492: conquest of paradise (1992), or "dogora", a symphonic suite by french composer Étienne perruchon). The word adiemus itself resembles the latin word 'adeamus' meaning 'let us approach' (or "let us submit a cause to a referee"). [1] jenkins has said he was unaware of this. [2] even more appropriately, perhaps, it also resembles two 1st person plural forms of the latin verb 'audire' (to hear), viz. 'audiemus' (we shall hear) and 'audiamus' (let us hear).

    This song may not contain sensible lyrics, but what it does contain is a quality that allows the grief within my own heart to come pouring out as I listen to it, in a flood of prayers for all of our soldiers who are in such tremendous danger now overseas--it was used as background music in a YouTube video tribute to the 10th mountain div. In afghanistan, showing footage of what they went through during operation enduring freedom, and more specifically the battle in the chora valley, during which my son was killed--so, this song is one I never want to stop hearing--it's one of the most beautiful and moving songs I've ever heard.

    While the lyrics are meaningless and are just sounds which capture the best conditions of the voice, the tune itself represents the beauty and tranquility of nature in the welsh foothills. Many can relate to the astounding beauty like for instance when a child is born, or the sunset in the easten desert of wadi rum. This song may be meaningless mumbo jumbo to some but to me it is the sound of the beautiful revolutin that will one day occur in the oppressed states of the world.

    I love this song, and the way that no words are used is amazing. I have spent many months trying to find out what language the song is actually in, and I'm shocked to find that it is just a made up monosyllabic language. I think that this is absolute genius and the song sounds beautiful. There are no words that we have to understand and this is what makes adiemus so special. Jenkins intended for the voice to be used as nothing more than an instrument. Every time I listen to it, I seem to understand the song more, although I'm still not sure what it actually means! If you know, please write a comment as I check back regularly. Thank you!

    This song is absolutely amazing. The tune is so soothing and use of no words is genius. This song does not portray any kind of message, it's just pure music. It's use in Suffering To Lose was a pleasant surprise, it made the film do much more emotive and its amazing.

    I know everyone will have their different reactions to a song without "real" translate-able words; some will say it has no meaning and others will connect to the emotions of it. This song makes me cry every time I hear it, though, because it makes me think of the earth, how beautiful it is, how much we take for granted, and how much we can gain back if we just start paying attention.

    Adiemus is the first movement od songs sanctuary, an extended choral-type word m=based on the european classical tradition, but where the vocal sound is more akin to "ethnic" or "world" music.
    The structure of songs sanctuary are influenced, in the main, by classical form, eg modified rondo, ternary, da capo aria. This is of extra importance because of the lack of lyric message that sustains conventional song form. The text was written phonetically with the words viewed as instrumental sound, the idea of being to maximize the melisma (an expensive vocl phrase) by removing distraction, if one can call it that, of words. The sound is universal, as is the language of music.

    Jenkins could have made this piece so much more meaningful if he had used a compatible language such as Maori or Hawiian it has that tribal sort of feel to the sound.

    I've sung several pieces by Jenkins, and some have used the same notion of using the voice as an instrument in its own right with the use of sounds rather than words. Sometimes it works. Mostly though, I just feel it is a bit of a waste of an opportunity on the composer's part.

    I'll tell you what, though- he is challenging; the sounds are difficult to learn fluently without lots and lots of practice simply to 'learn' the 'words' and he's a terror for using the sustained high A and B.
