It was a foggy day in London, and the fog was heavy and dark. Animate London, with smarting eyes and irritated lungs, was blinking, wheezing, and choking; inanimate London was a sooty spectre, divided in purpose between being visible and invisible, and so being wholly neither. - Our Mutual Friend, Charles Dickens.

It is said by the Eldar that in water there lives yet the echo of the Music of the Ainur more than in any substance that is in this Earth; and many of the Children of Ilúvatar hearken still unsated to the voices of the Sea, and yet know not for what they listen. - The Silmarillion, J. R. R. Tolkien

I love TolkienGateway, it pretty much has anything you ever need for knowing Tolkien!


Thanks for the definition! It makes sense since Aragorn used these to heal his friends since he is the King of Gondor!




"Keen, heart-piercing was her song as the song of the lark that rises from the gates of night and pours its voice among the dying stars, seeing the sun behind the walls of the world; and the song of Lúthien released the bonds of winter, and the frozen waters spoke, and flowers sprang from the cold earth where her feet had passed."

If the very word for Athelas in Quenya is tied to "King" maybe the word was the root of Ioreth's proverb

A Beautiful & Moving Ending [In reply to] Can't Post


In Reply To
..at least, not right now, 'cos I'm on the computer, but now-ish. I thought I'd slip in to add one that I don't think anyone has mentioned and that's 'In Dreams'. It stands out for me because at the end of my very first cinema viewing, which I had gone along to with great misgivings, expecting disappointment, 'In Dreams' was echoing in my mind as I emerged from the cinema. I could still hear it when I realised how special the film had been and I associate it with that realisation.


I agree. The music as Sam and Frodo are gazing towards Mordor, and then as it builds towards the boy solo. It is one of the most beautiful endings in so many ways, but it wouldn't be half of what it is without that music.

On a personal note, I had been living in Korea for a couple years (2000-2002) and was gone for all of the movie hype. I must confess, before the movies, I knew virtually nothing about Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit. I came home and had heard nothing in Korea about the movies, and I hadn't even seen a movie in two years, so my family said they were going to take me to this amazing, awesome movie called Lord of the Rings. I didn't know a thing about it, but as I sat in the theater it was one of the most magical experiences I've ever had at a movie. I was beyond moved, and the music was a large part of that, especially at the end of the film. I stayed through the credits and listened to "In Dreams" because it was so beautiful. I remember thinking to myself, "Was this movie seriously as good as I feel it was? Because I've never had an experience like this before." And now here I am--a true Tolkien nerd and die hard fan!

Moving [In reply to] Can't Post

First time I watched it, it moved me so much I could hardly sleep. Up until then I had only read the Hobbit, and didn't realise LOTR was anything to do with TH. I watched FOTR, and realised it was written by the same author and thus I read it. But FOTR moved me hugely.

Lighting of the Beacons and Aniron // [In reply to] Can't Post

Go singing to their shame."

but Aniron is just so beautiful. My sister had been given a CD of Enya , and it had a longer version of Aniron. It's really beautiful.

The whole score is just so perfect. I listened to it a few days ago after not doing so for quite a while. It took just fa few notes and I was back in Middle Earth.

Not Just a Film Score [In reply to] Can't Post

I also agree. The score doesn't just compliment the film, or even the film and the book, but I've felt it really is as close as a score has come to actually representing the mythical world, races, and events that it is connected to. This truly is the music of Middle Earth. Not just the films, not even just the book, but of the legendarium itself. The fact that it works so well in the films is a testament to me that the films, also, harmonize very well with the world of Middle Earth. They all work so well together, supporting one another, that they each can stand alone as epic and grand, yet also don't feel fully complete without the other.

This is really what Tolkien meant [In reply to] Can't Post

When he said


Quote
"The cycles should be linked to a majestic whole, and yet leave scope for other minds and hands, wielding paint and music and drama."


(emphasis mine)
This was Tolkien's goal when he created Middle-earth. And I think it has been achieved.
