I just came across news of a new project of the Danish "Tolkien Ensemble" with - again - the participation of Christopher Lee.
From the website http://www.cdklassisk.dk/product_info.php/products_id/2387:
(highlighting is mine)
Christopher Lee & Tolkien Ensemble: Complete Songs and Poems 4-CD box + 120 pages book. The first complete musical interpretation of J. R. R. Tolkiens masterpiece The Lord of the Rings with original illustrations by her Majesty the Queen Margrethe II - Kurt Ravn, Ulrik Cold, Tom McEwan og Povl Dissing have collaborated with The Tolkien Ensemble to put music to the 70 poems in the book. The costly project has taken 10 years and has involved many Danish musicians: DR Underholdningsorkestret, DR Radio The chamber choir, The chamber choir Camerata, The chamber choir Hymnia, and Københavns Yngre Strygere. The legendary Christopher Lee and the Scot folksinger Nick Keir have also participated in the project. The music is written by Caspar Reiff (1971), who founded The Tolkien Ensemble in 1995 and Peter Hall (1946). Caspar Reiff and Peter Hall have got the permission by The Tolkien Estate to take on the great endevour 4-CD box + 120 pages book
A German news site has posted additional information: they write that Christopher Lee will be a narrator on these CDs, to connect the musical pieces with the story. Here is the link (in German, unfortunately): http://www.herr-der-ringe-film.de/v2/de/news/news_489.php. The source is cited as Amazon, however I can't find that much information on their page about the CD.
It is not mentioned whether he will sing and/or recite Treebeard's poetry, as he has done on the Tolkien Ensemble CD "At Dawn in Rivendell" with "Treebeard's Song" and "The List of the Ents".
I wondered whether I should put this topic here or in the discussions forum, but I would like to ask for more information about Christopher Lee's participation in this project, and, of course, I would like to know whether the above information is correct.
I just hope it is correct, and I hope he will both sing and narrate.
(Well, I would certainly not complain even if he did the whole 4 CDs all by himself, all the voices and everything but the instruments *grin*. The Galadriel song might be a bit of a problem, but then again, I think he can do everything. )
