Prog-rock icons and Middle-earth travelers Glass Hammer have just released their 2nd DVD, Live At Belmont a double-disc 5.1 concert featuring the 150 member Belmont University Choir. The Nashville, Tennessee event was filmed at last years Past Watchful Dragons, a C. S. Lewis conference which featured Inklings scholars from around the world. At the concerts emotional crescendo, Glass Hammer has the massive choir singing in Elven, Latin and English all at once.
We chose to work with Elven during the recording of The Inconsolable Secret last year, says GH founder Steve Babb. Its such a beautiful language. We had access to Tolkien scholars and experts, so we did have some help. But what a powerful experience, and thankfully one we filmed!
Critics are already hailing Live at Belmont as another hit for the worlds greatest prog-band.
Glass Hammer released the Tolkien-inspired Journey of the Dunadan in 1993, and The Middle-earth Album in 2001.
