Artist Comment: Composed in order to present a semi-live concert with other instrument players, choir and some visuals (three concerts were actually presented in various towns in Finland). There were some 20 people involved in the project. The inspiration came from Tokien. The music was composed and recorded in '90-91. They described some events in the history of the Tolkien's world (Ainulindale I-V came from the subsequent wars in Silmarillion, I think). I was, at that time, deeply moved by the depth of the history of Tolkien's world.
