    Check out the Annie Lennox track from ROTK:

    ROTK soundtrack

    Given the lyrical content of the track, it's pretty easy to guess at what point in the film this will be placed (if you've read the book).

    A listened to it twice and I think it's rather good.

    It would also appear that James Gallway is featured elsewhere in the fim score. I spilt his pint once but thats another story.

    Nice to see it develop. Ropy at first but eventually quite beautiful.

    Just bought the ROTK soundtrack. Possibly the best of the three films.

    Minith Tirith & The White Tree re-work the "Gondor" theme used for new Boromir footage in TTT EE.

    The Fields Of The Pelennor is pounding and conjures up some wonderful battle imagery, and blends it with the sinister Nazgul theme from FOTR.

    The Ride Of The Rohrrim adapts the existing theme and cunning sneaks in a celtic current from the Shire (representing Merry I would suppose).

    Billy Boyd lends his volcal talents to The Steward Of Gondor. Again suitably celtic with that distinct shire motiff.

    The Black Gate Opens offers an excellent and heroic variation of the original "Fellowship" theme and Sir James Galway underpins this with more shirefolk material. The piece finally develops into a triumphant statement .

    The End of All Things offers striking choral vocals and that develops into a beautifull solo. Without giving to much away, anyone familiar with the book will easily workout out what events are covered here, and they are scored magnificently.

    Without risking spoilers for those awaiting the story's conclusion, it will suffice to say that The Gray Havens and Annie Lennox's Into The West are poignant and bitter sweet.

    Glorious music. Give the man another oscar.
