Glass Hammer’s 150 Member Elven Choir!

Prog-rock icons and Middle-earth travelers Glass Hammer have just released their 2nd DVD, “Live At Belmont” – a double-disc 5.1 concert featuring the 150 member Belmont University Choir. The Nashville, Tennessee event was filmed at last year’s “Past Watchful Dragons”, a C. S. Lewis conference which featured Inklings scholars from around the world. At the concert’s emotional crescendo, Glass Hammer has the massive choir singing in Elven, Latin and English – all at once.
“We chose to work with Elven during the recording of The Inconsolable Secret” last year,” says GH founder Steve Babb. “It’s such a beautiful language. We had access to Tolkien scholars and experts, so we did have some help. But what a powerful experience, and thankfully one we filmed!”
Critics are already hailing “Live at Belmont” as another hit for “the world’s greatest prog-band.”
Glass Hammer released the Tolkien-inspired “Journey of the Dunadan” in 1993, and “The Middle-earth Album” in 2001.
