Something Misty

One of the best things about the Hobbit movie for me is the singing of “Misty Mountains” by the dwarves in Bilbo’s home.

It’s a beautiful, reverent scene—a complete contrast to the washing-up song that came before—set to a gorgeous piece of  music woven by several male voices, with these Gregorian drones that are simply amazing.

So it’s no small accomplishment that Peter Hollens has sung this piece a capella and solo, and nails it:

Bravo, Mr. Hollens—and kudos also to Tom Anderson, who arranged the piece.
