'It would be a shame if this beautiful instrument were never to leave these halls, for there are many in Middle-earth who would be heartened by its gift of song. Dark places are everywhere, Name, including the hearts of Men, Elves, dwarves, and hobbits alike.
'Darkness prevails especially in times such as these, where doom seems inevitable. You have seen the Orcs prowling as sure as Men walk, and wights leaving their barrows to trouble the fields upon which they fell, and Warg-voices rending the stillness of a quiet night.
'My thoughts often turn to a dear old friend in Bree-town who goes by the name of Erling Goodbody. He has suffered much hardship of late, and my songs used to cheer him. I have such a song here; but I'm afraid I don't have time to make the journey. Do you think you could go and play this song for him in my stead, Name?
'Erling usually spends his days in the thoroughfare in front of the Prancing Pony. Find him and play him a song to raise his spirits. When you have done this, please return to me, for I wish to hear tidings of my friend.'
Now that you've recovered the instrument, Pada has asked you to head to Bree and use it to brighten the spirits of some of the townsfolk there.
Erling Goodbody can be found in the throughfare in front of the Prancing Pony.
Pada, a widely-respected Minstrel, has asked you to cheer a friend of his from Bree using the great instrument you recently recovered.
Speak with Erling and let him know that Pada sends his best.
Pada is in the Foundations of Stone in Moria.
You should return to Pada and tell him that his friend Erling Goodbody was very pleased with the song you played.
