Years ago I began to play around with ideas for themes based on the Lord of the Rings. When Howard Shore’s music for the films appeared on the scene, I put my themes away - how could they compare to the wonderful, rich and deep tapestry that Shore provided? But recently I’ve thought I’d share them again - they are very different in their approach to Shore’s thematic material.

There are six themes in the youtube playlist, and I will add more as time goes on.
