- A tape from 1996, entitled The Starlit Jewel
- A cd from 2000, entitled The Starlit Jewel
In 1969, Marion Zimmer Bradley set seven of Tolkien's poems to music and called them "The Rivendell Suite." In 1991, Margaret Davis and Kristoph Klover were asked by Bradley's secretary to arrange, perform, and record "The Rivendell Suite" on cassette as a birthday present for Marion Bradley. They recorded:
- "...six of Marion's settings, plus three of Kristoph's, and Marion was very pleased with the results. Only two copies were ever made of that original cassette. Then, Kristoph and I got to thinking how it might be a good idea to set some more of the songs and see if we could get permission from the Tolkien Estate to release the recording commercially."

Eventually, the project was authorized by the Tolkien Estate and they were granted a license to produce 1,000 cassettes. However, the Tolkien Estate forbade them to use the title "The Rivendell Suite," so it was changed to "The Starlit Jewel," and was released on tape in 1996.
In 1999, they were granted a new license to produce 2,000 cds. The cd album was released in 2000, together with The Starlit Jewel Songbook.
