The Lord of the Rings LP
"The following chapter and line information is given with a cautionary word as the information is approximate when related to The Lord of the Rings as printed. It is to be remembered that this material was recorded sometime before the publication of the book and no doubt, Tolkien reworked the material before submitting it to Rayner Unwin.
A slight liberty has been taken with the Great Elvish poem which begins "Ai! laurië lantar lassi surinen!" and is recorded on Side B, Band 6. Tolkien recorded this also in a spoken version which appears on the Caedmon recording of THE HOBBIT and THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING (TC 1477). It appears here in Tolkien's own Plain-Chant. It seems to me to sum up the whole of the Ring so beautifully , that I trust it will not offend in its present placement. WARD BOTSFORD
