The comlplete set of Paul Corfield Godfrey's Epic Scenes from The Silmarillion after the mythology of JRR TolkienThese settings for soloists, chorus and orchestra survey the whole mythology of J R R Tolkien's writings on the First Age of Middle-Earth and beyond, using the author's own words with the kind permission of the Tolkien Estate and HarperCollins Publishers.

All five parts of the cycle are here included, together with the complete assembled texts and a guide to The Silmarillion summarising the plot as adapted in the epic scenes themselves.
