The Prophecy

Track 1 - FOTR


(3:55) Some of this music is heard during the prologue. (see note below)



A choir sings. (This music, 0:00 - 2:12, is not in the movie.)






Quetis Ilfirimain:



Corma turien te



Corma tuvien (ends @ 0:36)



We hear a hint of the two opening notes of the History of the Ring Theme.



Or norena caita huines



We hear a hint of the six quick notes of the History of the Ring Theme.



Numenna ta



Tercแno Nuruva. (this line is sung in the movie as Gollum takes the Ring into the Misty Mountains. It doesn't sound exactly the same, however)



Tuvien Corma tultien te

Huinesse nutien

Corma turien te Corma.



The choir crescendos and gives way for some quiet Pity of Gollum music. Gollum is in his cave purring to his Ring, his precious. Galadriel in a voice over talks about Gollum’s history with the Ring.



Nameless Fear plays for "Rumor grew of a Shadow in the East." A ripple appears in a dark pool of water.



"The Ring left Gollum." The Ring bounces down an incline as Nameless Fear continues.



(The remaining music on this track is not in the movie.)



A horn plays a quiet, tentative phrase of the Shire A Theme.

From the Annotated Score of the FOTR by Doug Adams

The filmmaker's originally shot Fellowship's prologue as a shorter sequence for which Shore wrote a self-contained four minute composition. During the film's editing, it was decided that a lengthier sequence would set up the film's story with a more detailed and visceral punch. The film's Prologue was expanded, and so Shore went back and composed a new work to match the edit. The first composition (featuring the text, "The Battle of Dagorlad") was presented on The Fellowship of the Ring's original soundtrack album in 2001, but never appeared in the final film.

"The Battle of Dagorlad" was the original title of "The Prophecy".:

It may interest you to know that the original title of this text was “The Battle of Dagorlad.” (Doug Adams)
