A Knife in the Dark

Track 7 - FOTR

 

(3:34) The attack of the Nazgl and the wounding of Frodo on Weathertop.
 


0:00

A long sustained note as we see an aerial shot of 5 Ringwraiths advancing on Weathertop.

0:05

The Mordor Skip-beat plays as the Hobbits run to the top of Amon Sl.

0:14

'Descending Third' Theme plays with a violin glissando laid on top.

0:27

Ringwraiths' Theme plays as a Ringwraith moves out of the Shadow. More Ringwraiths emerge and throw aside Merry, Pippin and Sam. Frodo runs and falls in terror. The 'Threat of Mordor' motif is laid under the chorus.

1:25

The final phrase of the Ringwraiths' Theme is heard as the last Nazgl is hit by Aragorn's thrown flaming brand. The Threat of Mordor motif plays a moment alone and then fades off.

1:38

The first pounding beat of the Isengard Theme plays over shots of a very changed Isengard. The trees are gone, deep pits are dug into the earth. HS COMMENT

1:55

We begin to hear choir voices over the pounding music as a moth enters the picture.

1:55

I cem...

2:15

The pounding music falls away and the choir is replaced by a boy soprano as the moth flies to the top of Orthanc. This is the debut of the Nature's Reclamation Theme. Gandalf captures the moth, mutters to it and...

2:41

Launches it back into the air. It flies off.

2:15

I cemen nurrua

ar i surei sre nai... naina!

2:46

The Isengard Theme plays again as the camera plunges down the side of the tower and into the depths of Isengards pits. There we see a Uruk-hai emerging from the earth, newborn.

3:14

The Isengard Theme crashes to an end and quieter music is played as we cut to Sam and Aragorn who begin looking for athelas.

3:25

A sword reaches out for Aragorn's neck as he stoops to pick some athelas he's found.
