The Council of Elrond

Track 10 - FOTR


(3:49) The first part of this track covers scenes with Aragorn and Arwen.  The last part is the forming of the Fellowship of the Ring.



Strains of the Rivendell Arpeggios are played by strings as Aragorn and Arwen discuss Aragorn's fate in the hall where the Shards of Narsil are displayed.


Enya begins singing. Arwen and Aragorn stand on the bridge and converse in Elvish. The length of the song in the movie is a little different than in the soundtrack.

O môr henion i dhű:

Ely siriar, ęl sîla.

Ai! Aníron Undómiel.

Tiro!  El eria e môr.

I ‘lîr en ęl luitha ‘úren.

Ai! Aníron...


They kiss as the last word is sung.


A slow, 4 beat intro to the Fellowship Theme is played immediately after Frodo says, "I will take the Ring to Mordor." at the Council of Elrond.


A slow, string version of the Fellowship Theme begins in earnest as Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli each pledge their help to Frodo.


A flute begins the Pensive Setting of the Shire A melody, picked up in a moment by strings as Sam, Merry, and Pippin each insist on being included.


The music, once more moves back to a heroic version of the Fellowship Theme.


The Fellowship Theme draws to a climatic close as Elrond announces, "You shall be the Fellowship of the Ring!"
