‘Sound and Spirit’ of Tolkien

Tonight on Public Radio International the show “Sound and Spirit” did an hour-long overview of Tolkien’s lyrics, both spoken (recordings of the beloved Professor himself) and sung, performed by numerous artists including Shadowfax, The Tolkien Ensemble, Glass Hammer, The Hobbitons, and Donald Swann.

There’s even a wonderful original song on the Return of the King, sung by Tom Smith in the style of “The King.” And a nod is given to Led Zeppelin’s preoccupation with all things Tolkien.

This link leads to the playlist:

There are other links on the page for listening to the entire archived show online (RealPlayer), and links to some of the websites of the performers featured. On the ‘listen online page there are links to a bibliography and a transcript of the show. [Listen Online]

Enjoy!
