If I am about, I will be happy to read some Sindarin and/or Quenya poems and texts.
Dadd, if you cant tell me exactly what you want to hear I'll give it a shot.I would love to hear some lines out of "The History of Middleearth Vol3: The Lays of Beleriand". Even tho i have the book im afraid i wont be able to read it. Its already hard to read for native speakers (let alone foreign speakers), so I wont even try to live up to what this Tolkien-poems deserve.
Also the great lays are pretty long (Children of Hurin is more than 2200 verses and Beren and Luthien has more than 4000!) and unfinished (sadly).
But ya, i would realy love to hear one or two Cantos from that.
I would like to hear either "The Lay of Leithian" The Cantos XIII and XIV (its where beren and luthien are in angband and escape with the silmaril until carcharoth bites off berens hand) but with the correction of the Recommenced Lay pls! xDDadd, if you cant tell me exactly what you want to hear I'll give it a shot.
Unfortunately I don't have the book but I should be able to find the Gorlim Unhappy on-line.I would like to hear either "The Lay of Leithian" The Cantos XIII and XIV (its where beren and luthien are in angband and escape with the silmaril until carcharoth bites off berens hand) but with the correction of the Recommenced Lay pls! xD
Or if thats too long (about 400 verses) maybe the story of "Gorlim Unhappy" how he betrayed Barahir in the Recommenced Lay (its Vers 199-340).
That are my two favorite parts of the story! ...well actualy its Beren standing before Thingol onehanded "showing" him, that he got the silmaril, but unfortunatly Tolkien never wrote the Lay this far
Edit: Wow... reading this now i guess im a nerd
I look forward to hearing Beren woo Luthien with Uncle Mando's voice.Since today is the 80th anniversary of The Hobbit first being published I thought would be a good day to officially announce that, after I finish The Lord of the Rings, The Audiobook will continue with The Hobbit.
I have also been given the idea of doing a Valentine's Day Special of sorts that would be a reading part of the Beren and Luthien book that was published recently, namely The Tale of Tinuviel, and if all goes to plan I may be able to get other people to help me with the reading... But I need to know if you guys would want it . The special would take place on the 11th of February, the Saturday before Valentine's Day because even though it's a lot to do in one go I'm not able to do The Audiobook on a Wednesday, sorry.
