[page 10] Fred Hollander, c/o Lloyd House : Caltech : Pasadena Calif 91109 As to musicaI instruments in LoTR, Greg, where do you find mentioned flutes, viols (!) and harps?, -/see Felice's letter thish./- I remember where fiddles were named, now that you mention it. As to the voices of the "speaking peoples" of Middle Earth. It seems to be agreed that the hobbits have high voices and that men had normal voices. The elves @elves'@ voices were of about man pitch (which is what Brooks meant by "normal," Greg) but were much more melodious as Greg has pointed out. But no one seems to have mentioned the Dwarves' voices. I tend to think of them as being mannish and therefore deep in proportion to size.
