About "The evening of the Iluvatar's children":

Caprice is a russian symphonic orchestra with 11 musicians passionated by the Tolkien's books. This album is a tale full of elves, orcs, dwarfs, ents, hobbits and men.

This album is the second part of the Elvish trilogy. The title of the album was chosen because it illustrates the last days of the Elves, Men, Ents, Hobbits co-existing in Middle Earth, the days described in J.R.R.Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Rhyme of Lore is a short intro, like a distant voice from the past speaking of the ancient knowledge of the Wise. Of Beren and Luthien is a ballad about the love between Beren, a Man, and Luthien Tinuviel, an Elven maid, who chose to become a mortal woman and pass away together with her beloved. O Rowan Fair is Bregalad the Ent's lament about a tree's death. Elves of Rivendell is a merry summer evening song from The Hobbit, an invitation to Bilbo Baggins and his dwarf companions to stay and rest for a while in Rivendell.A real tribute to Tolkien's poetry that will spell you with its charming sounds even if you don't know anything about Tolkien.
