The Great River

Track 15 - FOTR


(2:43) The Fellowship leaves Lórien via the Anduin River and pass through the Gates of Argonath.



Soft voices sing as the Fellowship paddle away from Lórien and Frodo remembers Galadriel’s gift of the phial. (This music is played only in the theatrical version. In the extended edition DVD it is replaced by music from "Farewell to Lórien", bonus track 20 on the Special Edition TTT soundtrack.)


Ai! laurië lantar lassi súrinen,

Yéni únótimë ve rámar...


We see Galadriel on the bank. "May it be a light for you in dark places when all other lights go out."


...aldaron! Yéni ve...


The music plays the opening phrase of the Fellowship Theme as the camera cuts to an aerial shot of the Fellowship going down the Anduin River. HS COMMENT


We hear two low notes of a horn and drums over more aerial shots of the Fellowship on the River. Then horns pick up hints of the Fellowship Theme, which quietly ends in a moment of silence.


The choir begins again as the Fellowship spot the Argonath.


Et Eärello Endorenna utúlien.

Sinome maruvan ar Hildinyar...


The History of the Ring Theme plays as the Fellowship goes through the Gates of the Argonath and then on to Amon Hen.  HS COMMENT


The music fades as we see the falls of Rauros.
