Loreena McKennitt Makes Middle-earth Music? - Popular Celtic Musician Hints at Involvement

The Book of Secrets - Loreena McKennitt CDIn a recent on-line chat at BarnesAndNoble.com, Celtic Musician Loreena McKennitt was asked about her rumoured involvement in the Lord of the Rings movies.

Here's what she said in the transcript:

Thomas-Mary Delest from Boissy, France:

A murmur had circulated that you might participate in the soundtrack of THE LORD OF THE RINGS film, is it right?

LM: That has been an overture. I am not completely clear where that stands at the moment.

She surely didn't deny her involvement, and it seems clear that she was asked to contribute to the movie soundtrack... perhaps Peter Jackson would like to have some vocal music in addition to an instrumental score (I'm thinking not in the movie, but as an outside connection, like Celine Dion with Titanic).

I like McKennitt's music, but I'm not sure if her involvement would benefit the vision Tolkien would have of this movie. What do you think?
