Subject: RE: Tune Req: Tolkien's 'The Man in the Moon'
In the BBC radio version of LOTR this song is virtually spoken by Ian (now Sir Ian) Holm. My memory is vague but I think there was a lone violin accompanying him.

The late Stephen Oliver composed the music for the adaptation, some of which was excellent, I always loved the tune to Boromir's dream, "Seek for the sword that was broken...etc".
