1. Author's Notes

The songs of Tolkien's world have always fascinated me. Ever are the master's works interlaced with bits of song, and they create a kind of fabric for the tale to fall back on and a better understanding of the peoples through which the reader is traveling. Songs of Ennorath is my attempt at capturing this in my own style, as well as drawing on Tolkien's style and thoughts for inspiration.

There have been several songs I've made reference to and/or used in my own works concerning Tolkien's world, and you can find some of them here.

Noldorin Lament: sung by Celegorm in Do You Love Me, Brother?
Mirkwood Lullaby: a modified version is sung in part by Fingon in Mad
Fëanorian Lullaby: sung by Maglor in Seven Stars

Others have been written on their own, inspired by the lands and cultures Tolkien painted so vividly. The collection ranges from songs of Valinor to Beleriand to T.A. Gondor and beyond. Enjoy!
