A Elbereth Gilthoniel

djShmeeJay_A Elbereth Gilthoniel

A simple little tune I made some time ago. Just some ambient sounds built around a sample of J.R.R. Tolkien reciting the elvish poem A Elbereth Gilthoniel, which goes like this:

A Elbereth Gilthoniel
silivren penna míriel
o menel aglar elenath!
Na-chaered palan-díriel
o galadhremmin ennorath,
Fanuilos, le linnathon
nef aear, sí nef aearon!

O Elbereth Starkindler,
white-glittering, slanting down sparkling like a jewel,
the glory of the starry host!
Having gazed far away
from the tree-woven lands of Middle-earth,
to thee, Everwhite, I will sing,
on this side of the Sea, here on this side of the Ocean

Melon,
