####_The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King_ – The Complete Recordings It is impossible to hear Howard Shore's Grammy-winning score for the _Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King_ without feeling like the three-part documentary about Middle Earth isn't playing on the back of your eyelids. Spanning four CDs and one audio DVD, the final installment of the "Complete Recordings" fills the musical archives of die-hard Tolkien fans with every second of the nearly four hours of music featured in the theatrical release—plus a slew of extra tracks from the extended cut. The _Return of the King_ installment is moodier and darker than the compilations for the first two films, but keen ears will recognize the familiar themes that Shore recalled again and again throughout the trilogy, from the heroic “Fellowship” theme to the seductive “Ring” theme. And the soaring reprise of the lilting, Celtic-tinged Shire theme halfway through "The Fellowship Reunited" is enough to bring tears of sap to every eye at the Entmoot.
The beautifully packaged boxed set includes all-new artwork and an audio DVD that turns home theaters into concert halls, filling them with an immersive, 5.1-surround-sound rendition of the score. A 48-page book of liner notes by Doug Adams, author of _The Music of the Lord of the Rings_, caters to the music-loving Tolkien scholar. In it, Adams delves into Shore's use of _leitmotif_, recurring musical phrases, which Shore borrowed from romanticist composer Richard Wagner.
