Almárë Speaks: Namárië

I recently recorded myself reciting the poem Namárië, or Altariel Nainië Lóriendessë.

It’s not perfect (far from it I imagine), but it was fun to do and now I’m more familiar with the audio software perhaps I’ll do some more recordings of various things (if anyone has any requests, do let me know).

Á lasta sís: Namárië.

The stress pattern I attempted to follow was (long vowels are written with double vowels instead of accents):
