BB, you and I hardly agree on anything, but thanks a million for posting this LOTR montage... it stirred my heart :-)

That's great to hear, padre wayne! There is another rather well-known person in the Episcoblogophere who stops by here from time to time and alas, we agree on few things, but just recently we discovered we're both Potter fans. Hope springs eternal, eh?

Thanks for posting!

Aye, I'll second it's always pleasant to mutual common interest with people, especially ones who may seem very little, it help this remain on issues and not God's image bearing creatures.

OFF Topic, but keeping in the theme of common ground.

Question for LOTR fans, what's the music this is set to? I don't think this is not part of Howard Shore's composition.

I know in another Two Towers promo they used "Lux Aeternum," which appears in a lot things like Requiem for a Dream & commercials (not as popular as "O Fortuna" {Carmina Burana} that is in everything).

Just kind of curious, so thought I'd throw it out there as a friendly rest bit in the Anglican Valentine's love fest.

Which "Lux Aeternam," Kevin? I think this could be the Howard Shore, but the credits are too fast to capture.

I could listen to the soundtracks for hours... I even like Enya *blush*

Kevin said...

Ohhh, you speak music?

In this trailer here a version of "Lux Aeternam" comes in at 1:34. Unsure of which version this is but it can be found here. The portion they use begins at 2:30.

I didn't recognize the background to this trailer, but I don't known the soundtrack and only get 30 sec. off the web, interested in the sound.

No worries on Enya (check my profile, she's between Enigma & Evanescence).

Kevin, that is simply awesome stuff! Thank you! And the composer is...? I love the soundtrack, but this "Lux" is unbelievable...

RE: "And the composer is...?"

It took a little bit but this is a special piece composed by Clint Mansell and performed by Kronos Quartet. It is loosely based on other classical works by the same title I've listen to in my search, probably why the name (all other pieces have English titles, in Latin means "eternal light").
