In Elven Lands (First Edition) cover

In Elven Lands is an album by The Fellowship, released on 31 January 2006. The Fellowship take a musicological approach to imagine how the ancient cultures described by J.R.R. Tolkien might have sounded, performing on an all-acoustic array of ancient and modern instruments that includes harp, lute, hurdy-gurdy, krumhorn and gong among a wide variety of others.

The songs on In Elven Lands are all drawn from aspects of J.R.R. Tolkien's Legendarium. The album title, In Elven Lands, is taken from the lyrics of their song 'Beware The Wolf': ...let us ride before the break of daythrough woven woods in Elven landsto find the starry-jeweled hand... The songs are written in dialects of Quenya, Sindarin, Anglo-Saxon and Modern English.
