Farewell to Lorien

Track 20 - TTT LE Soundtrack


This track is found only on the Special Edition Soundtrack of The Two Towers (Track 20).  The music was used over additional scenes in the Extended Edition of The Fellowship of the Ring DVD and in TTT.  This page contains the FOTR cues.



Fellowship Theme plays as the Company paddles off onto the Anduin as they leave Lórien.


A choir sings softly. The Company is moving down the Anduin but each member (all but Boromir) remember, in turn, receiving their gift from Galadriel and her words to them.


Yé(ni) ú(nó)timë ve rámar
Yéni ve
lintë yuldar avánier
mi oromardi lissë-miruvór


The choir drops out as Galadriel goes to Aragorn.


The choir starts again as Frodo receives the Phial of Galadriel.



Nai hiruvalyë Valimar!


The choir drops out again as Gimli laments his parting from Galadriel.


A solo voice joined by a choir sing. This music is used for the scene where Aragorn visits his mother’s (Gilraen) grave. Elrond joins him and they discuss Aragorn’s destiny as heir of Elendil.


Le iôn adar lín

I broke the first part of the track down by dialog and scene descriptions. Why, I have no idea... but hey - I did it so you get it.


Fellowship theme plays as the Company paddles off. Legolas smiles.


A choir sings softly. During this segment, we first see an individual or pair in the boat with a look of reminiscing on their face... then we see a flashback of that individual or pair receiving Galadriel’s gift to them - each in turn.

Legolas examines the bow.

Galadriel (voice over): My gift for you, Legolas, is a bow of the Galadhrim. Worthy of the skill of our woodland kin.


Galadriel smiles and moves to Merry and Pippin.


Merry and Pippin draw daggers from their sheaths.

Galadriel (voice over): These are the daggers of the Noldorin. They have already seen service in war. Do not fear, young Peregrin Took. You will find your courage.


Sam receives the rope while looking at Merry’s and Pippin’s daggers.

Galadriel: And for you, Samwise Gamgee, Elven rope made of hithlain.

Sam: Thank you, my lady. Have you run out of those nice, shiny daggers?

Galadriel smiles. She moves to Gimli, who cannot look at her from shyness.


Galadriel: And what gift would a dwarf ask of the Elves?

Gimli: Nothing. (He looks up at her.) Except to look upon the lady of the Galadhrim one last time. For she is more fair than all the jewels beneath the earth.

Galadriel laughs and Gimli turns away in embarrassment.

Gimli: Doh. Actually, there was one thing. No, no, I couldn't. It's quite impossible. Stupid to ask.

Cut to Gimli and Legolas in the boat. Gimli is smiling.


Galadriel: (to Aragorn) I have nothing greater to give, than the gift you already bear.

Galadriel touches the Evenstar


Am meleth dîn. I ant e guil Arwen Undómiel pelitha.

(For her love, I fear the grace of Arwen Evenstar will diminish.)

**the music played over this segment of Aragorn’s and Galadriel’s conversation on the DVD is not on the soundtrack’s "Farewell to Lórien".

Aragorn: Aníron i e broniatha ar i periatham natha methed ned amar hen. Aníron e ciratha na Valannor.

( I would have her leave these shores and be with her people. I would have her take the ship to Valinor.)

Galadriel: That choice is yet before her. You have your own choice to make, Aragorn. To rise above the height of all your fathers since the days of Elendil or to fall into darkness with all that is left of your kin.

Aragorn gives a little nod of reluctant understanding to Galadriel.


Galadriel: (to Aragorn) Namárië (Farewell!)


Galadriel: (to Aragorn) Nadath nâ i moe cerich. Dan, ú-'eveditham, Elessar.

(There is much you have yet to do. We shall not meet again, Elessar.)


Frodo receives the Phial of Galadriel.

Galadriel: Farewell, Frodo Baggins. I give you the light of Earendil, our most beloved star.

She kisses Frodo on the head.

Back in the boat, Frodo looks at the Phial.


Galadriel raises her hand in farewell as the Fellowship canoes down the river.

Galadriel: May it be a light for you in dark places, when all other lights go out.

We cut back to the boats going down the Anduin.


Gimli: I have taken my worst wound at this parting, for I have looked my last upon that which is fairest. Hah! Henceforth I will call nothing fair unless it be her gift to me.


Legolas: What was it?


Gimli: I asked her for one hair from her golden head. She gave me three.

Legolas smiles.
