    The Silmarillion Audiobook project

    Fellow Tolkien fans,

    As I am totally and entirely in love with The Silmarillion and all Tolkien's works, I have decided to create a non commercial Audiobook for the Silmarillion. The beauty of the language is nothing short of astounding and the epic grandeur of the narration incomparable. And I know there are many of you who feel the same about his works.

    I am extremely fond of Martin Shaw's version (perfect voice imho) and I do not seek to compare to him, but my focus will be on proper pronunciation of any and all elven names and a bit more variety in my narration. I will also compose music to underscore the narration (but only subtly so)

    I will not record it chronologically but rather jump from chapter to chapter depending on my mood.
    The first chapter will be "Of the Ruin of Beleriand and the Fall of Fingolfin"

    You can watch a trailer of it to see if you like the style of the narration and the music.

    Chapter 18 (37 Minutes) will be published this Sunday. As I aim to improve the quality of the recordings any feedback is greatly appreciated.
