Although this collection is very much of its time, the ever increasing popularity of the Lord of the Rings gives it a continuing appeal to those who love Tolkien's books and would like bring the songs of the characters in them to life. I bought the book because I remembered playing the songs 30 odd years ago and had a sudden urge to revisit them. I was not disappointed; the tunes fit well with the songs, and are evocative and melodious. Although the pieces ideally need a full size piano keyboard, only minor adaptations are required to play them on a smaller one. Guitar parts are included. The playing difficulty varies, but pianists of about grade 3 standard should be able to have a good stab at this.
