Recommendation: «Lord of the Rings» Symphony

«The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.»
Haldir in «The Lord of the Rings»

Ah, the «Lord of the Rings» trilogy — been a couple of years, but it did age very well. One thing I did not notice that much was the music, which fits the movie perfectly. And which deserves to be listened to on its own.

Thankfully, someone has uploaded «The Lord of the Rings Complete Symphony» ( ) on YouTube:

And even provided the listing of the pieces:

The Fellowship of the Ring
00:00 – Movement 1
(The Prophecy – Concerning Hobbits – The Shadow of the Past – A Short Cut to Mushrooms – The Old Forest – A Knife in the Dark)
11:16 – Movement 2
(Many Meetings – The Ring Goes South – A Journey in the Dark – The Bridge of Khazad-dûm – Lothlórien – Gandalf’s Lament – Farewell to Lórien – The Great River – The Breaking of the Fellowship)

The Two Towers
45:30 – Movement 3
(Foundations of Stone – The Taming of Smeagol – The Riders of Rohan – The Black Gate is Closed – Evenstar – The White Rider – Treebeard – The Forbidden Pool)
01:03:55 – Movement 4
