Audio Examples and revised footnotes
The long-promised site update has arrived. Apart from the usual fixes and improvements, this update brings you audio examples of all relevant sections from most of the pieces discussed. This is possible courtesy of composer Caspar Reiff (Tolkien Ensemble), who graciously allowed me to use excerpts of his group’s work for illustration purposes on this site. I am very, very thankful for that and want to shout out a big Kudos to the Tolkien Ensemble!
All examples are embedded in a player and can be streamed directly from the site. Please note that all these files are strictly for information purposes; they are reduced in audio quality and must not be downloaded, recorded or used in any other way without express written consent of the copyright holders. All copyright remains with the Tolkien Ensemble.
Also, all footnotes are now embedded directly in the text. No need to skim through the sidebar anymore.
I hope you enjoy this update!
