The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (Film Score) – Howard Shore

Album: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King

Artist: Howard Shore

Released: 2001, 2002, and 2003

Description: What Howard Shore did for The Lord of the Rings is exactly what John Williams did for Star Wars: create a lasting, musical identity for the film. I fell in love with the movies and the score for reasons that are obvious when listening to it. It is unlike any film music of its time. It does not feel like a fantasy score so much as music from another time and place. Every album has so much to highlight so I wanted to group them here for you. Perfect music for fantasy writing.
