J.R.R. Tolkien’s constructed Elvish languages have such elegant characters — and have been the subject of so much Tolkien-influence art — that it’s easy to forget that they was meant to be spoken.

In the recording above, Tolkien reads Namárië — Galadriel’s lament — giving us a first-hand pronunciation of the Elvish tongue Quenya and a feel for the poem’s rhythm.
