      Yes, indeed! In fact, there are *two* recordings of Galadriel's
      Lament on Caedmon LP #TC1478, _J. R. R. Tolkien Reads and Sings His
      The Lord of the Rings_: one spoken and one sung. Phonetic
      transcriptions of both renditions appear in _An Introduction to
      Elvish_, ed. Jim Allan (Frome: Bran's Head, 1978), p. 158. These
      might be regarded as the same version with regard to the underlying
      text, but there are a number of differences in pronunciation between
      the two recordings.

      "Do you know Languages? What's the French for fiddle-de-dee?"
      "Fiddle-de-dee's not English," Alice replied gravely.
      "Who ever said it was?" said the Red Queen.
