“O Tannenbaum Gilthoniel,”
the Music Video

Elvis or Elvish? Pat Wynne, the incredible fanartist and Elvish Linguistic Fellowship scholar, has posted a video of himself singing Tolkien’s Elvish verse “A Elbereth Gilthoniel” to the tune of “O Tannenbaum.”

Facebook friends can see it here. Everyone else can find it on Karen Traphagen’s Boulders 2 Bits (where it is sometimes necessary to reload once or twice to start the thing running.) As a bonus for visiting Traphagen’s site, you can also see the lyrics in Elvish script alongside the English translation.

Let your season be merry and bright, watch Pat Wynne’s video tonight!
