The settings were by Donald Swann (remember Flanders and Swann?). They
(and settings of some of Tolkien's English poems) were published, with
piano and guitar accompaniments, in Tolkien and Swann's "The Road goes
ever on" (Allen & Unwin, 1968). The Elvish texts have calligraphy and
linguistic notes by Tolkien.
