Likely the most appreciated, analyzed, and awarded scores of the new millennium has been HOWARD SHORE'S epic, original score for Peter Jackson's LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY. Years after the some of the most complete soundtrack releases ever, comes the lost awaited book and CD release, THE MUSIC OF THE LORD OF THE RINGS - A Comprehensive Account of Howard Shore's Scores.
