Thorongil sang softly as he polished his gear, a rapt expression on his face.

“I am surprised that you know this song.”

Denethor’s words startled him out of his reverie.

”I have known it since childhood,” Thorongil said simply.

“The words are remembered only by scholars and those of high lineage here in Gondor,” Denethor said coldly. “What common soldier would know “The Lay of Lúthien?”

“It is different in the North."

“It surprises me that those living in such a desolate land would study lore,” said Denethor.

“Much about the North would surprise you,” said Thorongil, resuming his song.

And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.
