GUEST,Some bloke Songs about Elves (44) RE: Songs about Elves 05 Aug 18


I went through the usual teenage phase of trying to set Tolkien poetry from TLOTR to music.

A couple have survived the years and years and I'm delighted to hear others sing them, often better than I do.....

Tolkien didn't want them set to music? Christopher Tolkien mentions in his notes that his father used traditional English tunes in his head when writing the obvious songs.
