There is an Album by an experimental musician from the 1950s by the name of Harry Partch, who had an album called "Bewitched" that I would listen to when reading Tolkien.

And Jean Michel Jarre's Oxygen or Equinox, both of which had a section that was sort of Medieval feeling. Jarre's work was early Electronic Music (in the days when you programmed each wave-form on a synthesizer with patch-cords between wave-guides).

The one track in particular, whose name I cannot track down, begins with a raid-storm, and a muted Accordion and Lute/Ukulele playing (in what sounds like the inside of a building). The sounds made me thing of the Third Age men of Beorn living on the edge of Mirkwood, inside after a hard day's work, with the cold rain falling outside, and then surrounding a roaring fire, playing music and singing.

Faun's Renaissance album is quite a nice record to read Tolkien to.
