If you want to know what the elf is saying, (my Elvish isn't perfect)... ..but I've provided a rough translation here:


The Elf's Story


It isn't a REAL orchestra but it is a real Elf...


I've got to mention LaLa here... Imre, my friend. You have been a brilliant, 'fresh set of ears', during the creation of this piece. Your input & suggestions have been both valuable & welcome... Thank you!


Roughly a months work to weave this into a musical story about a murdered king, a lost crown & a hero who saves England..

This is good for my elf.
Elf. Exactly. One louder.
This is so well put together. A phenomenal remix. Well done
Contains some great stuff! Love theme is my fav!
So the soundtrack is ready. When is the movie going to be released? Simply amazing from start to finish.
Lala knows what's good. Nicely done! All time number one already? What the heck!
Gives the tune a well earned fresh rebuild!
Immensely beautiful.
Lovely suite.
Very nice made - even I don't know what's that elf thingy is about K)

Overall rating

This is the absolute best remix I've heard on here. It's 10 minutes of pure storytelling, seamlessly pit together by someone who really knows what they're doing. Technically, its flawless. Nostalgically, it puts you right back in the game and artistically, the added background sounds are superbly placed and appropriate. Overall, this suite of music has atmosphere and great emotion. It gave me goosebumps in places. Really, really well done.
