Tolkien Collectors: FYI
- We are a promotion company based in Hamburg, and we would like to let you
know about the new product released by Membran International that
undoubtedly concerns whoever is interested in the works of Tolkien: the
Set ?Lord of the Rings?.
This set is made of 4CDs plus a 108 page book in English and German,
containing the 70 poems of ?Lord of the Rings? and the complete original
artwork by Queen Margrethe of Denmark, which were very much liked by
himself, both available for the first time in a stand alone book.
This is the final result of Caspar Reiff?s idea, who is also a guitar
player in the famous Tolkien Ensemble. He has worked ten years to complete
this project, involving more than 150 artists. No one less than
Lee is the star guest voice, he emphasised the already magic atmosphere of
this work with his baritonal tone, just as Sarumon could do. Musically the
product represents a very gentle mixture of Folk and Classical.
Reiff?s direct contact with Tolkien?s heirs, who are, as you might know,
quite restricting with Tolkien?s work can guarantee the uniqueness of this
product. This is by far not just another ?Lord Of The Rings? item .
The musical adviser of the Tolkien Estate probably can give the most
honourable opinion about it:
?I find this is the most interesting and exiting work. It reveals a close
sympathy with the original work and a remarkable ability to vary the music
not only in relation to the different styles and moods of the poems but
in relation to the different characters from whom the poems come?.
