Let’s Talk LOTR is a weekly series of posts, sparked by my obsession with all things Middle Earth. It’s also my way of dealing with the wait (for The Hobbit, of course). Anything Tolkien-related is fair game. Come join the fun and geekery every Sunday!
How could I have spent all that time talking about the Complete Recordings, and neglect to show you a single track?
As I said before, “The Lighting of the Beacons” is one of my favorites. It contains all the major leitmotifs in a glorious 9 minute bundle. Turn up your speakers for this one, sit back, close your eyes, and drift away to Middle Earth.
And now I’ll slip out, and let the music do the talking.
P.S. For those of you wondering, this is available for individual purchase on iTunes. It’s (need I even say this?) well worth the 99 cents.
