First conceived in 1992, In Elven Lands applies the techniques of forensic musicology to discover what the music of J.R.R. Tolkien's "Middle-earth" may have sounded like. After years of research, a group of musicians began recording at Christmas of 1998, a journey that would take them more than seven years. After the first two years, a visiting musician dubbed them "The Fellowship." The name stuck.
The results of their labour, In Elven Lands is the fully realised music of an ancient, lost civilization. This digitally remastered Second Edition features previously unreleased material and entirely new performances, including a song by J.R.R. Tolkien, writing from one of the formost Tolkien linguists, and a 50-Page digital booklet that gives you a glimpse into the ancient text of the Tir Im Psalter.
