Many Meetings

Track 9 - FOTR


(3:05) Frodo wakes up in Rivendell and reunites with all his Hobbit friends. Now he must decide what to do next.


Chorus sings the Rivendell Theme over a distant view of Rivendell with an Elven Rider in the foreground. Cut to Frodo’s reunion with Sam then Merry and Pippin.


Nef Elbereth Gilthoniel

Silivren penna míriel


Chorus drops out and an orchestra begins the Hymn Setting of the Shire A melody. Frodo catches his first glimpse of Bilbo and he runs to him. HS COMMENT


A clarinet picks up the Pensive Setting of the Shire A melody as the two embrace and then talk about Bilbo’s book, 'There and Back Again, A Hobbit’s Tale'.


The clarinet drops out and the orchestra continues the Pensive Setting with the secondary Shire B melody as Frodo opens up the book to a map of The Shire. Clarinet picks up the primary Shire A melody using a Pensive Setting.


The Rivendell Theme returns with the chorus singing one short phrase. Sam is packing his bags and ready to go.


Elbereth Gil....


Back to a Hymn Setting of the Shire A melody. Frodo decides to leave the Ring in Rivendell and go home.


On the last note of the Shire A melody we cut to a high shot of Frodo and Sam and a voice over from Elrond. "His strength returns."
