Happy Valentine’s Day Lass!

Thank you Mechling. What a treat that was. I would like to buy some of their music. But first I need to run into Mad Baggins "who used to vanish with a bang and a flash and reappear with bags of jewels and gold" :D

Did you know that, on ROTK EE DVD, the music accompanying the very last song, during the Fan Credits, is composed by Howard Shore as a final good-by to fans? The choir sings Bilbo’s aged song in Sindarin. It is beautiful.

I found the information at: http://www.amagpiesnest.com/source_songs/ROTK/SSbilbos_song.htm

Thank you for that link, Estë, and I'm sorry it's taken me so long to reply.

I have long enjoyed listening to Shore's version of "I Sit Before the Fire and Think" that's on the "Complete Recordings" RotK. I had no idea, though, that it was composed with that intention -- that it is meant as a goodbye to fans. I think he was a bit premature, in light of "The Hobbit", hmmm? ;)

I am sorry the Tolkien Ensemble's CD's are so pricey, too. I downloaded most of what I have from copies borrowed from libraries. I listen to music on an MP3 player these days, so I have put even the CD's I already own onto the hard drive so I can load them into my little machine.

If you really like the music, I'd be happy to make a copy for you. I know you can't play a Region 1 film DVD, but maybe your computer would play a DVD with only audio files on it? A DVD holds way more than a CD does, which is why I suggest it. All the albums would fit on one disc.

Don’t be sorry about any delay in replying, Lass. I am not on line as often as before. My love of Frodo lives on. When ‘The Hobbit’ is closing in on us I’m sure the excitement will be renewed, albeit on a smaller scale.

I'd be happy to make a copy for you.

That is a generous offer, Mechling. Thank you.
My birthday is coming up in a few months so I am giving hubby a ‘nudge’ (not out of the door though). Isn’t it remarkable how, almost, all things revolve around LoTR, books and films? :)

Don’t hesitate to ask me if there is anything I can do for you.

*smooch*

Do you mean, though, that you would like a copy, or that you would like the CD's as birthday presents from your husband? There is an advantage to that, since you get the booklet that comes with the CD with all the liner notes. But if he doesn't come through, or can't get all of them (check on Amazon and look at the song listings; I believe there may be two titles for what is the same song list, but I forget which album that applies to), let me know.

*another smooch*

I would like the CD's as birthday presents from hubby. I have even sent him the link. :D

We have snowstorm warnings here and minus 11 C. Brrrrrrrr!
