The music of The Lord of the Rings film series was composed, orchestrated, conducted and produced by Howard Shore. Shore wrote many hours of music for The Lord of the Rings, 10 hours of which have been released in the Complete Recordings CD/DVD boxed sets. Additional music, including alternate and unused compositions, was released with the book The Music of the Lord of the Rings. Shore composed the music in an emotional, operatic way, threading through the scores over 90 identified leitmotifs, which are categorized by the Middle-earth cultures to which they relate. The scores for The Fellowship of the Ring and The Return of the King won Academy Awards in 2002 and 2004. The latter film also won an Oscar statuette for Best Song, as well as the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score and Best Original Song.

Soundtrack, Classical | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 00:50:02 | 115 MB
Label: Howe Records

Academy, GRAMMY, and Golden Globe winning composer Howard Shore is best known for his rich and densely orchestrated scores for Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings films. This disc features a more intimate - and classical - side of Shore's music. The title work, A Palace Upon The Ruins, is a song-cycle, sung here by mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnson Cano. The texts were inspired by a story from the past that speaks of the healing of an unresolved trauma. Other works on the program include Six Pieces for chamber orchestra (featuring the Kronos Quartet) and Catania, a work for solo piano played by the superstar pianist Lang Lang.

Like it or not, Public Image Limited's First Issue (aka Public Image) was an album that helped set the pace for what eventually became known as post-punk. In England a vacuum had opened up in the wake of the breakup of the Sex Pistols in January 1978, and many punk fans and rival groups were impatient to see what ex-Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon aka "Johnny Rotten" was going to roll out next…

The Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring OST (2001) by Howard Shore
Format: Enhanced, Limited Edition, Soundtrack | MP3 192 Kbps (VBR) | Label: Reprise / Wea

Score composer Howard Shore has informed this first installment of the Lord of the Rings trilogy with his distinctly modern sensibilities. Revolving loosely around a brief, heroic brass theme, this epic is infused with a powerful rhythmic thrust and a musical range that encompasses centuries (from the Renaissance pastoralism of “Concerning Hobbits” to the fiery, Prokofiev-influenced drama of “A Knife in the Dark”). Key to the score's sense of mystery and magical place are the rich choral passages that are interspersed throughout, some so ominously gothic they make The Phantom Menace's “Duel of the Fates” sound almost sunny by comparison. Enya's contributions (“The Council of Elrond” and the song “May It Be”) add a sense of organic tranquility, but it's Shore's Wagnerian-scaled orchestral score that should long be cherished by admirers of film music and hobbits alike.

Author of music wrote: "Yes! I am one of the few that have set Tolkien's songs from The Lord Of The Rings to music. There are a great many that have written music and songs inspired by the books, (check it out), but only a small number that have used Tolkien's words. Of these, less than a handful have done a decent number of them. If you wish to hear a full realisation of Tolkien's songs the only commercially available version is that of The Tolkien Ensemble. This is because Tolkien's Estate have a blanket ban on anyone else using his words.

Label: Warp | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 67:18 min | 156 mb
Electronic, Ambient

Mark Pritchard's first solo album in five years, boldly re-establishes what an 'album' can mean at this point in time. Designed to be listened to in one sitting, Under The Sun achieves what most albums aim for but rarely achieve - perfect synergy. Where the potential of the sum of the parts, the individual tracks, resonate even more fully when experienced as part of the whole album. Under The Sun is one story told in chapters and, as with any good story, the spell is only maintained if you don't skip to the end.
