(My previous post was unexpectedly truncated!)

I was only going to remark that my setting of Legolas's song "To the sea" (from "The Return of the King") is featured as part of the text in "The War of Wrath", my newly-composed conclusion to the "Silmarillion" cycle which is due for issue next year. That also includes a complete setting of Bilbo's "Lay of Earendil" (from "The Fellowship of the Ring", the longest single poem in "The Lord of the Rings") where Tolkien's text is expanded for full chorus as a framework for the dramatic action describing that episode from the mythology. Other songs from "The Lord of the Rings" also featured on my album "Akallabeth and other Tolkien works" issued back in 2017.
