The Lord of the Rings is one of most successful trilogies in film history earning 17 Academy Awards including 3 for its music. Beyond critical acclaim, the music from the films also enjoyed wide commercial success, collectively selling 7 million copies. Directed by Peter Jackson, The Lord of the Rings films are based on the popular J.R.R. Tolkien novel of the same name. The first soundtrack from the Trilogy, The Fellowship of the Ring: The Complete Recordings, available as a 3CD + 1BluRay audio disc containing high-resolution 5.1 and stereo mixes of the entire score. This release is a reactivation of the 2005 box set featuring extensive liner notes from author Doug Adams who analyses many of the themes and motifs used throughout the score. The music for all three films was composed, orchestrated and conducted by Howard Shore. The music he wrote for The Fellowship of the Ring was performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, with contributions by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, the London Voices and the London Oratory School Schola. The soundtrack also highlights two original songs written and performed by Enya: May It Be and Aníron (Theme for Aragorn and Arwen). The Fellowship Of The Ring: The Complete Recordings is the first in a series of three releases that will also feature The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003) on colour ed vinyl for the first time.
