My wish list, no musician I but I sometimes have ideas: A fantasia based on the theme to Doctor Who could be fun. A symphonic interpretation on the Lay of Beren and Luthien. Everyone in that seems to have a musical theme: the betrayal, Ungoliant (a very disturbing alien theme), Luthien (Nightengale), the duel of Felagund and Sauron, Huan (the baying hound), the dance of Luthien before the Silmiril, Carcharoth's madness (the ravening wolf competing with Huan's theme in battle); and finally the appeal to Eru, the One, (deeper than the Abyss, higher than the Firmament, piercing as the light of the eye of Iluvatar). That one I can imagine but have no ability to imagine it into being. If someone would like to imagine it, then consider it a gift. - andrew. -- Andrew Smith, Intheologus
