An Evening In Rivendell is the first album by the Danish group The Tolkien Ensemble. It features songs composed to the lyrics found in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and thus forms the first part of what was to become a complete musical interpretation of all lyrics in The Lord of the Rings.
