I enjoy movie scores. John Williams started it back in 1977 or '78 when I received the two-LP set of the soundtrack for Star Wars. I have since collected a fair number of movie scores/soundtracks and enjoy them often, choosing one that fits my mood at the time or triggered by a movie reference. Scores from Williams, Ennio Morricone, Alan Silvestri, James Horner, Hans Zimmer, and more can be found in my collection.
The score for The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring by Howard Shore is one of my all-time favorites. I have purchased the Complete Recordings set for each of the Lord of the Rings movies, and the one for Fellowship has gotten the most play.
Earlier today, I came across a mention of a YouTube video titled Lord Of The Rings: How Music Elevates Story, which you can find embedded below.
The video breaks down Shore's approach and uses scenes from the movie with their associated music to illustrate his points, and it really gets to the heart of why the music just works so well.
(If for some reason you have not seen the movie, then you'll probably want to skip the video, as it does contain some spoilers about critical plot points. Do yourself a favor and watch the movie!)
Take a look at the video below, and if it inspires you to check out the score for that movie, or any other movie for that matter, then my job here is done!
