"Middle-Earth is not an Imaginary World"
J. R. R. Tolkien not only kindly shared with the whole humanity the extraordinary world created by his mind. He brought to everyone who believed in his words, a shelter, which walls can’t be trepassed by any evil. A shelter where love and friendship mean more than just false promises based on biased words. It's a light to you in dark places, when all other lights go out. He shall live forever inside each page that brings Arda to life.
R.I.P. Jan, 3, 1892 - Sep, 2, 1973

(music meme) » (1/5) soundtracks - The Lord of the Rings 

The music of The Lord of the Rings film series was composed, orchestrated, conducted and produced by Howard Shore. Shore wrote many hours of music for The Lord of the Rings, 10 hours of which have been released in the Complete Recordings CD/DVD boxed sets. Shore composed the music in an emotional, operatic way, threading through the scores over 90 identified leitmotifs, which are categorized by the Middle-earth cultures to which they relate. The music was performed primarily by the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Voices, with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra contributing some of the early Moria music. A wide variety of instrumental and vocal soloists contributed to the scores as well. The scores for The Fellowship of the Ring and The Return of the King won Academy Awards in 2002 and 2004.

Into the West - Annie Lennox

Lay down your sweet and weary head
Night is falling You have come to journey’s end
Sleep now and dream of the ones who came before
They are calling from across the distant shore
Why do you weep? What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see All of your fears will pass away
Safe in my arms you’re only sleeping  
What can you see on the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea, a pale moon rises
The ships have come to carry you home
And all will turn to silver glass
A light on the water, All souls pass
Hope fades into the world of night
Through shadows falling. Out of memory and time
Don’t say: “We have come now to the end”
White shores are calling
You and I will meet again
And you’ll be here in my arms just sleeping
And all will turn to silver glass A light on the water
Grey ships pass  into the West

"And we shall meet again somewhere away from despair and pain. And I shall hold your hand again and on a sunny day we shall remember all the good times we had together, times that I had treasured inside my heart forever, on this sunny day all the pain will slowly fade away and we shall share what we’ve done whilst we were parted in life. But til this day comes I’ll keep you alive in me and I’m sure you’re in a good place recovering from all the wounds life’s infringed on you. I love you forever more my dear gramma, rest in peace and be sure you and I will meet again." Talytha (Tolkienianos’ owner)

Translation:
The tree is bare, the fountain still.
Whither goest thou Boromir?

The Mouth of Sauron

Sindarin:
Ta han narcho Gurth.
Gar vethed e-chúnen,
go hon bedithon na meth.

Then let death break it.
He has the last of my heart.
I will go with him to the end.
