leaving Rivendell (EE) Can't Post

I have my quarrels with some of the additional material in the EEs but I think the scenes in FOTR work. In particular I like the expanded scene of the Fellowship leaving Rivendell. They're obviously following some ancient custom in which the central figure in the Quest has to lead but Frodo has to ask, in low tones, "Mordor, Gandalf - left or right?".

There's also an added minute or two of music that starts with a variation of the Fellowship theme and goes some particularly nice places. Howard Shore must have like it, too. With all that had to be cut to fit the whole story into the LOTR Symphony he kept that section intact.
