I have always felt that this song would suit me

...Is it wrong to still be cracking up every time I imagine Cur saying his throne line in utter seriousness?

And did I mention just how much my current schedule and talent for procrastination are conducive to music writing? The Bickering Bros, up until Enter Thingol. Ahh, it's good to be back. ^.^

Agreed. I thought this part yields itself very nicely to a sung dialogue, and didn't clutter it with musical details for the same reason. Background noise, featuring overly expressive and comically emotional voice solo.

I am a little hesitant about the O Silmarils section though, cause it's a lot faster here than it was the first time around. For comparison, this song is at 170 beats per minute, while Oath is at 140. If I do the slow-down function in the program, it does the trick for a few bars, but then keeps slowing down, so by the end of the section it's barely crawling along. What I can do is pull one from Renunciation and just record this segment at a different speed. If you feel it needs slowing, I think this is what I'll do - but only for the final recording, because I don't want to be splicing pieces in and out each time.
