On 16 August, 1964, Tolkien wrote to Carey Blyton: "You certainly have my permission to compose any work that you wished based on The Hobbit....As an author I am honoured to hear that I have inspired a composer. I have long hoped to do so, and hoped also that I might perhaps find the result intelligible to me, or feel that it was akin to my own inspiration - as much as are, say, some (but not all) of Pauline Baynes' illustrations....
