  1. I really really love this site and the pronounciation on the non-english Fellowship…. I could help doing some voice-recordings in the future if needed!! Have a pretty fair pronounciation in Sindarin…

        1. I got it from the translation of an almost identical song that is in the FoTR soundtrack. The unknown Gimli line translates to: “A Crown of Stars in the cold, black water of the Mirrormere, Balin sleeps”
          Go ahead and the check the Moria chant lyrics if you need to.
