Duel: The dress rehearsal (https://drive.google.com/file/d/10fougctM3i1sVvhuwDAcm0e24s7HNVRJ/view?usp=sharing), or something. The (hopefully) second to last progress report.

Never go to Tolkien for council, for he will say both no and yes. ;)

But my (much less scholarly) opinion is that if Elves served as the prototype for orcs, whether directly or as a "model" for a...

So I have a question:

If a woodchuck can chuck wood, how many Finwes can a Finwe Finwe? ;)


I am also imagining this scenario, which probably confirms exactly why Noldorin mothers named their...

As long as they are somehow separate and recognizable, doesn't matter to me how they are written - just wanted to make sure they don't become the same chord!

- Credits with portraits sound like a nice option

Would it help if I made the recordings equal to the time of the music (ie start recording on the first note)? Because for Melian I haven't been doing that, as she only starts singing 2 stanzas in.

No answers, just thoughts.

3. Sounds like repetition is in order. Maybe a name structurally akin to, say, Fingolfin, or Ghan-buri-ghan. But don't have one to fit the clue in a way that makes...

Taniquetil is perfect! Personally I didn't mind the step-wise progression. I love how it works out.



Ooooh! What if they stand up to "full height" either before or after the Duel - or,...

Sauron wouldn't be any more after Bree than after any other settlement not yet under his rule, I don't think. It has strategic importance as a "crossroads" town, but no inherent value beyond that....

The news

I re-recorded Melian (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ZIEssv406j-SBCsYUqZ2D0OD2HPaX6kn/view?usp=sharing), I think this sounds clearer, but there are a couple thumps during the breaks in singing. How...

The first time the picture started fading to Valinor and the sheen around Taniquetil (presumably? Or just a tall mountain?) started lighting up around Sauron, it looked super cool...

Sauron sounds creepy. Nice and evil. Very Sauron. A question about dropping by one pitch - is that just the voice or the instrumental too?

Lovely! :)

I think the tempo works very well, it gives Sauron a chance to give full measure to his contempt.

Finrod - I know exactly what you mean! I also can't sing him as written, if I sing...

In the Russian lyrics she even calls Finrod her "only brother" - like the other 3 didn't exist. But you're right, even if they do exist, she is the last one standing, and the only one standing for...

I say FAY-a-nor as well, and I feel like that just falls more naturally. So I'll keep the emphasis that way for now, and can always move it back to fay-a-NOR if there is good reason to do so.

I listened to it at home again - it's Melian's lines. They are coming in slightly late. Your lines sound fine.
