Yet amidst these valiant, desperate people, hope remains. A royal house endures unbroken from father to son. This 70 minute original drama is set in the time before the War of the Ring and tells the story of the Dúnedain, the Rangers of the North, before the return of the King. Inspired by only a couple of paragraphs written by Tolkien in the appendices of the Lord of the Rings we follow Arathorn and Gilraen, the parents of Aragorn, from their first meeting through a turbulent time in their people's history.

[This video was originally uploaded to YouTube on November 18, 2017] In this video we turn back the clock and see what gaming was like in 1982! Also I fanboy about The Lord of the Rings. So there's that.
Tolkien’s mysterious, haunted barrow-downs appear in the Fellowship of the Ring and they are explored further in the appendices. We learn a little of the history of the barrow-downs, and how it was once a great city of Arnor, but was attacked by the Witch King of Angmar and came to be a haunted and dangerous place. This film is set against Tolkien’s mythology but is an original story. We will follow a company of adventurers as they venture into the barrow-downs, in an attempt to rob the ancient tombs of their treasures. However they will face many dangers and difficulties and become swept up in the ancient war between the forces of good and evil.
Roughly translated, these words mean: "One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them."
These words were physically painful to any Elves who heard them, as any words of that "Black Speech" which incurred some of Sauron's dark power on those present. When Gandalf recited them at the Council of Elrond, the sky darkened and the Elves were pained.

May It Be is a song composed and sung by Enya for Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. It was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Song in 2002. The Fellowship of the Ring’s end credits begin with Enya’s composition, “May It Be,” wherein the broken Fellowship is offered a blessing and a faint glimpse of hope: “A promise lives within you now.”
ENYA: In the early 1980s, Enya toured with members of her immediate and extended family in the Celtic folk group Clannad, but soon broke away to pursue her own work along with regular collaborators Nicky and Roma Ryan. In Fellowship, Enya wrote and performed “Aníron” and “May it Be.”
“I wanted Enya’s voice,” says Shore. “She wrote and I orchestrated, so it’s a seamless sound. Her singing grows right out of the choral music and the orchestra.”
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.
Estel means 'hope' and is the name Gilraen gave to Aragorn. The source text was published in FOTR Annotated Score. 𝐒𝐮𝐧𝐠 𝐛𝐲 𝐇𝐢𝐥𝐚𝐫𝐲 𝐒𝐮𝐦𝐦𝐞𝐫𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐋𝐨𝐧𝐝𝐨𝐧 𝐕𝐨𝐢𝐜𝐞𝐬.
Hilary Summers has the distinction of being the only alto soloist used in The Lord of the Rings films. “I wanted an alto voice for Gilraen,” recalls Shore. “I thought that a low female voice would be a great sound.” Summers has also performed extensively on the film scores of composer Michael Nyman.
Aragorn's father was killed when Aragorn was young. As the heir of Isildur he was in danger from the Enemy, so his identity was kept secret and he was called '𝐄𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐥', which means 𝐡𝐨𝐩𝐞. He was fostered in Rivendell by Elrond, a distant relative, who became as a father to him.
After a few years Gilraen took leave of Elrond and returned to her own people in Eriador, and lived alone; and she seldom saw her son again, for he spent many years in far countries. But on a time, when Aragorn had returned to the North, he came to her, and she said to him before he went: and Gilraen returned to her people. When last they visited...
As the eight heros depart, Shore develops a somber variation out of the Fellowship theme in the cor anglais and violins, incorporating a few concluding strands of the Lothlórien melody. A female chorus sings “Namárië,” Quenya for “Farewell,” as Galadriel looks upon the eight one last time. Steeled to their task, whatever it may entail, the Fellowship earns one last collection of heroic variations on their melody.
Many Meetings is the ninth track of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Howard Shore. It is played during the beginnings of the Hobbits' time in Rivendell.
"The hymn to Elbereth" Sung by The London Voices, female choir. This was sung (in the book) by an Elf of Rivendell in the Hall of Fire on the eve of Elrond's Council.
Varda Elentári, known in Sindarin as Elbereth Gilthoniel, was a Valië, one of the Aratar, the wife of Manwë and Queen of the Valar. She was said to be too beautiful for words as within her face radiated the light of Ilúvatar. Elves love and revere her most of all the Valar, and they call upon her in their hours of deepest darkness. She appeared in shining white fana in visions to the Elves of Middle-earth, and thus was called Fanuilos (Snow-white).
This hymn is the longest Sindarin text in LotR, found near the end of the chapter "Many meetings" (LotR1/II ch. 1). The hobbits are in the house of Elrond and leave the Hall of Fire: "Even as they stepped over the threshold a single clear voice rose in song... [Frodo] stood still enchanted, while the sweet syllables of the elvish song fell like clear jewels of blended word and melody. 'It is a song to Elbereth,' said Bilbo. 'They will sing that, and other songs of the Blessed Realm, many times tonight.' "
The hymn to Elbereth (Tengwar superscript Aerlinn in Edhil o Imladris, *"Hymn of the Elves of Rivendell"): 𝐀 𝐄𝐥𝐛𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐭𝐡 𝐆𝐢𝐥𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐧𝐢𝐞𝐥, 𝐬𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐯𝐫𝐞𝐧 𝐩𝐞𝐧𝐧𝐚 𝐦í𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐥 𝐨 𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐥 𝐚𝐠𝐥𝐚𝐫 𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐡! 𝐍𝐚-𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐝 𝐩𝐚𝐥𝐚𝐧-𝐝í𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐥 𝐨 𝐠𝐚𝐥𝐚𝐝𝐡𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐦𝐢𝐧 𝐞𝐧𝐧𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐡, 𝐅𝐚𝐧𝐮𝐢𝐥𝐨𝐬, 𝐥𝐞 𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐧 𝐅𝐚𝐧𝐮𝐢𝐥𝐨𝐬, 𝐥𝐞 𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐧 𝐧𝐞𝐟 𝐚𝐞𝐚𝐫, 𝐬í 𝐧𝐞𝐟 𝐚𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐨𝐧!
O Elbereth who lit the stars (white) glittering slants down sparkling like jewels from [the] firmament [the] glory [of] the star-host! To-remote distance far-having gazed from [the] tree-tangled middle-lands, Fanuilos, to thee I will chant on this side of ocean, here on this side of the Great Ocean!
Flight To The Ford is the eighth track of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Howard Shore. It is played during the escape of Arwen and Frodo to the Fords of Rivendell.
"The Song of Lúthien": Arwen's Theme, sung by The London Voices "The Revelation of the Ringwraiths" sung by The London Voices "Arwen's Prayer" Sung by The London Voices, female choir.
Tinúviel is the name that Beren gave to Lúthien. It means "nightingale, daughter of twilight" in Sindarin. In the book, the poem is called "The Song of Beren and Lúthien."
Aragorn sings "The Song of Beren and Lúthien" to the Hobbits as they made their way from Bree to Rivendell. Beren was mortal, Lúthien an Elf maid. The love of Aragorn and Arwen echo the love of Beren and Lúthien and the grandsons of Beren and Lúthien were the heads of the two family lines of which Arwen and Aragorn are the final heirs.
At The Sign Of The Prancing Pony is the sixth track of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Howard Shore.
Events at the Prancing Pony with Hobbits, a Ranger, and Riders. This track is heard on the FOTR Soundtrack CDs (regular and special edition). Lyrics from the FOTR, TTT, & ROTK Annotated Scores, sung by The London Voices. These lyrics are sung as part of the Ringwraiths Theme. The lyrics used are in Adûnaic ("language of the west").
The Treason of Isengard is the fourth track of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Howard Shore. This track is heard on the FOTR Soundtrack CDs (regular and special edition).
Frodo and Sam leave Hobbiton as Gandalf goes to Saruman for advice. Saruman, however, has gone treasonous. Lyrics from “The Black Speech Ring Verse”, sung by The London Voices.
Tolkien only provided the full verse in English and four (lyric) lines of the Ring Verse in Black Speech. The first five lines below are from the FOTR Annotated Score, translated by Salo.
The filmmaker's originally shot Fellowship's prologue as a shorter sequence for which Shore wrote a self-contained four minute composition. During the film's editing, it was decided that a lengthier sequence would set up the film's story with a more detailed and visceral punch. The film's Prologue was expanded, and so Shore went back and composed a new work to match the edit. The first composition (featuring the text, "The Battle of Dagorlad") was presented on The Fellowship of the Ring's original soundtrack album in 2001, but never appeared in the final film. "The Battle of Dagorlad" was the original title of "The Prophecy".
𝓣𝓔𝓧𝓣𝓢 (𝓯𝓸𝓻 𝓪𝓵𝓵 𝓿𝓲𝓭𝓮𝓸𝓼) Choral lyrics in The Lord of the Rings films reference the past histories and broader concepts of Tolkien’s universe. Several passages directly quote the author’s writing, though the majority of the verses are original, scribed by Philippa Boyens, Fran Walsh, David Salo and, for Enya’s work, Roma Ryan.
Shore often uses the texts in a nonlinear fashion, much as one would find in modern opera. Verses are often begun mid-stanza and certain syllables are repeated to create a beautiful vocal mosaic of the languages of Middle-earth. At other times, the writing is presented unaltered with full verses acting as counterpoint to the immediate action.
Seen here is the text in its original complete format, just as it was presented to Howard Shore before he set it to music. David Salo, the world’s leading expert on Tolkien languages, provided the translations, resetting texts in the languages of Middle-earth.
Often, however, Tolkien’s concept of the languages didn’t include the detailed vocabularies the filmmakers wished to use. In these cases Salo’s work extended to language creation, where he found himself expanding the existing dialects to more accurately express the writing.
For the "Fellowship of the Ring", texts were translated into five languages, each representative of the cultural histories of Tolkien’s world: the Elvish languages of Quenya and Sindarin; Khuzdûl, the language of the Dwarves; Adûnaic, the oldest language of Men; and Black Speech, the language of Mordor.
