Subject:all the Fellowship score bits you ever wanted
Posted by:fringelement.
Time:4:41 am.
Well, I'm possibly one of the laziest mods in the history of the world.

But look! Shiny linkage!

Over on filmscore, swashbuckler332 reported that the track listing for the extended, three-disk Fellowship soundtrack (which is due out Nov. 22) has been released. It's right here.

Disk 1, track ten : The Passing Of The Elves. Disk three, track two : Caras Galadhon. Howard Shore is God.

This community seems dead, and that's sad.

Shall I try to generate some conversation?

I love and am obsessed with the song 'In Dreams' from the Fellowship soundtrack and movie. I recently performed the vocal version, and about a month ago, I arranged it for a flute/french horn duet.

Which song do you love the most? How far does your obsession stretch?

This is my first little entry in the community and i might as well start by saying "Hullo" I have played Alto Sax for seven years. I this year marched with a bari sax instead of an Alto.... *shudders* I have been LOTR obsessed since I was very young as well as with music. :) I hope to have fun here.. or somthing lol. By the way to any other girl bari sax players that use a harness boy do i sympathize for you, and those that dont understand what i mean by this... To put it nicely the damn harness makes your boobs pop right out.. Lol well ill talk to you all later:)

I just joined. I'm a flute/pic/voice/sax player from Maryland/Deleware, I've been obsessed with LOTR since I was about 7, and my favorite LOTR song is In Dreams. Now that all the essentials are down, I'll spit out what I have to say...

My highschool concert band is going to play Lord of the Rings music this year. Not Howard Shore, unfortunately -- however, it is still famous and pretty music made before the movies. I was all... VERY HAPPY. Understandable, no? We won't be playing it until the spring, so I have awhile to wait!

Hi! I'm new to this community and I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm Laurel, I'm 17(18 in three weeks), and I am completely obsessed with everything related to the Lord of the Rings. I'm not actually in band, but I'm in chorus and I love the LOTR soundtracks. I'm always looking for new friends, so comment if you want me to add u.

Hey all, I have a question.

Does anyone here know the lyrics to The Bridge of Khazad-dum? Using David Salo's traslation and a couple of sites, I've got a pretty good idea, but I am still in need of assistance. Does anyone here have any idea as to what some parts (especially 1:33-1:40, 2:07-2:40) are?

Thanks :)

I'm sure most of you have heard of this already...but I figured I would post it in case some of you hadn't. Thanks to melime for finding the article.

From TORN:Laurelinthegolden writes: I just received issue #16 of the LOTR Fan Club magazine, and it's reported Howard Shore will come out with a NINE disc set with the complete scores to each movie. 2 discs for FoTR, 3 each for TTT and RoTK, and the last disc featuring unreleased rarities along with commentary from Shore. Plus, plans are in the works to release a two disc live recording of The Lord of The Rings Symphony, and a DVD which includes a documentary on the making of the symphony and a performance by the Montreal Symphony. Looks like music fans will have much to look forward to!

I apologise for being rather neglectful of this community...does anyone know of a shareware/etc. music-writing program for PC? I have a ton of solos worked out by ear that I'd like to post.

Subject:LOTR and BAND

Mood: awake.
Wow. It's so amazaing how no matter anywhere you go, band dorks are still relatively all the same. Omg I love marching band so much it rocks my saucy socks. And I also <3 lotr! Yay. My band director is absolutely OBSESSED with LOTR, so much that last year, our halftime show was about it. It was called, RINGS and it was great. I loved it. This is my second year in High school marching band, even though I am now a freshmen, I had the privelage of marching in 8th grade too along with only 3 other people. Band is what I love to do, so I hope I get along awesomely with all you other lotrbandlovin homies. :D

hi, i'm Tara, 17 from Danvers, MA.

I'd like to tell how pleased I was to stumbled over this community at 2:30 in the morning.

this is the ultimate community among lj-conmmunities, no joke.

i play clarinet, tenor sax, tried-to-teach-myself-piano(so not well at all), baritone, and guitar. my parents are investing in a violin and lessons (after years of perserverance and antagonizing) at the end of the summer. all the above instruments i feel i play very mediocrely-to-poorly.

i love the lotr soundtracks and arrangements. my friends make fun of me a lot for listening to it all the time in my car.

my school is not near cool enough to play shore's material, nor do i feel we have the right instrumentation even if we wanted to. my band has the talent but is very lazy.

p.s. i'm a bandgeek i love band, a lot. people thinks its weird.


i hope that none of you mind my joining here.

I am bugg. :) Um... I'm in pit in my high school's marching band, and this year will be my freshman year... ive been in pit for two years already, though. I would love to play LOTR for our show this year, but our director chose the matrix... which is fine! lol :D I can't imagine life without band... I mean, holy crap- my whole social life is built around band! contest saturdays are the BEST... a long busride with my friends, a performance, and then another long busride. :D Anyway... this community looks to be good. I look forward to meeting you all!

Drum roll please...
Jessie is Drum Major and I'm Jr. Drum Major...I get to direct movement 4 and maybe 5.
Those are the only captains that were announced...maybe we'll find out the others tomorrow.
Well, we also got the show music...for baritones and trombones, its divided into three parts. Usually all baritones play 3rd...you know, hardly ever leaving the staff...well, Brock decided to give me first part...oh joy...hardly ever on the staff...what fun...but, I'll manage. I my blow out my lips during the competition, but I'll have that 4th movement to rest them...lol...well, that's about it for today...ttyl

Mood: annoyed.
Thursday was the day for drum major and junior drum major tryouts...woohoo!!!
Okay...these are the people who tried out(all of them were friends of mine...lol)...
-Cory(current sophmore/trombone)
-Jessie(current sophmore/french horn/my best friend/last year's drum major)
-Me(current sophmore/baritone/euphonium/last year's junior drum major)
-Millie(Current 8th grader/trumpet)
-Britney(Current 8th grader/french horn)
Fun, fun...well, yesterday, Cory, Millie, and Britney *somehow* saw the score sheets of one of the judges...me and Jessie were mad, because we're not supposed to find out until Monday...Cory was mad, because he had the lowest score(64)...hahaha...
I don't know what the outcome will be, because that was only one judges scores, and the band directors have the final say...I'll keep you posted...lol

PS-We had our concert Thursday...we played the LOTR music the best yet!
