Note: This track also has Gilraen's Song, but I cut that part because I preferred to make a separate video for it.
- Namárië, also called Galadriel's Lament, Altariello nainië Lóriendessë (Quenya for "Galadriel's lament in Lórien"), and sometimes Song of the Elves Beyond the Sea, is the longest Quenya text in The Lord of the Rings. The word Namárië means "farewell" in Quenya. The word can be analyzed as na + márië, being a blessing and meaning literally "to goodness". The poem was set to music by Donald Swann. The sheet music and an audio recording are part of The Road Goes Ever On, A Song Cycle.

𝑻𝒐𝒍𝒌𝒊𝒆𝒏’𝒔 𝒕𝒓𝒂𝒏𝒔𝒍𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏 (𝒏𝒐𝒕 𝒍𝒊𝒕𝒆𝒓𝒂𝒍): Ah! like gold fall the leaves in the wind, long years numberless as the wings of trees! The long years have passed like swift draughts of the sweet mead in lofty halls beyond the West, beneath the blue vaults of Varda wherein the stars tremble in the voice of her song, holy and queenly.
Who now shall refill the cup for me?
For now the Kindler, Varda, the Queen of the stars, from Mount Everwhite has uplifted her hands like clouds and all paths are drowned deep in shadow; and out of a grey country darkness lies on the foaming waves between us, and mist covers the jewels of Calacirya for ever. Now lost, lost to those of the East is Valimar! Farewell! Maybe thou shalt find Valimar! Maybe even thou shalt find it! Farewell!
FOTR, Book 2, Chapter VIII, Farewell to Lórien Galadriel sings this song as the Fellowship departs from Lórien.
Lothlórien is the fourteenth track of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Howard Shore. It was composed and performed by Elizabeth Frazer. The Fellowship enter Lothlórien and meet with Celeborn and Galadriel.
- Footsteps of Doom: These lyrics are sung as the first two lines of the Lothlórien Theme. Sung by Miriam Stockley and The London Voices, female choir. - Lament for Gandalf: The Lórien Elves lament for Gandalf contains a solo part and a choral counterpart. The soloist is singing a Lament for Gandalf but the chorus is singing a "Lament" for the ending of the Elves and the life they have known. Solo part sung by Elizabeth Fraser. Choral part Sung by The London Voices.
A Journey In The Dark is the twelfth track of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Howard Shore. The lyrics are written by Philippa Boyens and translated into Neo-Khuzdul by David Salo. This covers the journey through Moria, up until the fight with the Orcs and Cave Troll.
The Moria pieces are among the most cheerless in the score. Shore’s music creates an oppressively sinister path for the Fellowship to journey. The Moria music utilizes the deepest, most ghostly sounds in the orchestral array, including a bass drum struck with a large rattle. The male voices sing “Durin’s Song” in the harsh, guttural sounds of the Dwarvish language. Source: http://www.elvish.org/gwaith/pdf/fotr_annotated_score_2.pdf

A Knife In The Dark is the seventh track of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Howard Shore. It is played during the period of time during the Ambush at Weathertop.
- The Revelation of the Ringwraiths: Sung by The London Voices. - A Moth in Isengard: Sung by boy soprano Edward Ross. NATURE'S RECLAMATION, a theme for Nature, is music that spans events in the movies. Quiet as a moth, determined as angry Ents, it "represents Nature's resistance of encroaching evil" (Doug Adams, CR--FOTR). In Tolkien's world, Nature is a culture alongside of the Elves, Dwarves or Men. He also notes that the simple, pure melody of the Moth music is a 'antidote to the industrial beating of Isengard'.
– WEATHERTOP The Wraiths attack the hobbits on Weathertop while Shore develops his Mordor themes in d-minor, slowly building a crescendo as the hooded villains move in for the kill. Even timpani get in on the action, presenting heavy melodic phrases from the Threat of Mordor. – THE CAVERNS OF ISENGARD With an electrifying burst of Fellowship fragments, Strider intercepts the Wraiths, and Shore introduces the Heroics of Aragorn’s next stage of development. Rising shapes in French horns recall the shady cello phrase that accompanies Aragorn in Bree, now emphasizing a bolder heroism. “He saves Frodo,” says Shore. “He’s Aragorn the hero - Aragorn the savior of Frodo. He’s so essential to the Fellowship.” The defeated Wraiths skulk back into the night while the Threat of Mordor hisses curses at their vanquishers. The collective dangers of Middle-earth, however, are far from conquered. Isengard has been ripped to shreds, converted into a deadly collection of machines and malice. The score introduces the Five Beat Pattern as the soulless drive of the once beautiful land, and the Isengard/Orc theme as its call to arms. “Here’s all that metal percussion,” Shore says, ominously. “It’s the industrial might of Middle-earth.” Also debuting here is material from the opposite end of the spectrum Nature’s Reclamation. This theme’s first appearance is flanked on either side by the Orcs’ bellicose Five Beat Pattern. Although the pattern fades when the Nature theme enters, the score actually calls for the London Philharmonic percussion section to continue playing the entire time.
Shore wrote this way, fully intending to dissolve a section of the Five Beat Pattern so that that this rhythm would never lose its energy. In the film, the Pattern reenters after the vocals with a ruthless sense of continued drive.
The Black Rider is the fifth track of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Howard Shore. It is played during the period of time in the film that Merry and Pippin run into Frodo and Sam in Farmer Maggot's cornfields, tumble down the embankment, and escape the Black Riders to Bucklebury Ferry.
1. The Revelation of the Ringwraiths: Sung by The London Voices. The attack of the Nazgûl and the wounding of Frodo on Weathertop. 2. A Moth in Isengard: Sung by Edward Ross These lyrics are sung at the debut of the Nature Theme as the Moth appears to Gandalf atop of Orthanc. Later, when Saruman and Gandalf are both atop Orthanc, the Moth reappears as does some a few syllables of singing.
– A SHORTCUT TO MUSHROOMS While an unseen Farmer Maggot pursues the four newly-united Halflings, the score briskly churns with the light hobbit-specific sounds of the orchestra: suspended cymbal, high woodwinds and strings, celesta, etc. However, the quartet’s makeshift escape route proves ineffective and leads them off the edge of a steep cliff, and directly into the path of the Black Riders. Low brass and strings enter at the bottom of the hill as the group is pelted with all manner of dispiriting Mordor material, orchestrated for the hollow tone of string harmonics and swelling chorus. Some sections of this music were mixed out of the film, as Shore explains. “Peter used more of the sound effects. He liked the quietness of this—the rider and the breathing.” Heard in this track is a rendition of the Wraith theme scored only for orchestral instruments and no chorus. It was decided that restraining the voices until the end of the piece would help build tension as the hobbits dashed through the woods.

ADDED 13/04/13 - Some people take issue with Tharatar the Elf having a beard. Let me quote the Wikipedia page for Cirdan the Shipwright, one of the greatest Elves in Middle Earth: 'He had a beard, which was rare for Elves'. Beards are rare, but not impossible for Elves!

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.
