J.R.R. Tolkien Sings
J.R.R. Tolkien was not only a fine reader of his own work, but he could carry a tune as well. The photo above is from an old LP. If you'd like an extensive collection of his reading his work aloud, look here. My favorite passage from the Audio Collection is his reading the "Riddles in the Dark" chapter from The Hobbit.
Meanwhile, here's a tune to whet your appetite.
