J.R.R. Tolkien reciting “Namárië”

I don’t know any more than the YouTube blurb (link added): “This is a rare recording of J.R.R. Tolkien from 1952, in which he recites the Quenya poem ‘Namárië‘, famously sung by Galadriel in the chapter ‘Farewell to Lórien’ in ‘The Lord of the Rings’.”

But the Elvish, spoken this way, is beautiful!
