1:00

The voices finish up their chant as Gandalf stops before three passages, unsure of which to take.


1:20

We hear the Pity of Gollum as Gollum climbs up on railing to get a better look at the Fellowship. Gandalf and Frodo discuss Gollum and the pity of Bilbo.

2:00

The Pity of Gollum theme ends with two minor notes as Gandalf asks Frodo if he could deal out death and give life. "Can you give it to them?"

2:06

The opening chords of the Dwarrowdelf Theme play as Gandalf decides which passage to take. Soft voices become audible soon after. HS COMMENT

2:18

The  Dwarrowdelf Theme begins as the Fellowship enter the Hall of Dwarrowdelf.

2:41

The male choir join in on the Dwarrowdelf Theme

2:50

Dwarrowdelf Theme reaches a peak in scale and volume as we see the massiveness of the Hall. "There's an eye opener and no mistake."

3:15

The Dwarrowdelf Theme (and voices) ends as the Fellowship round a corner and see an open door into a room. (Which we learn is Balin's tomb.)

3:18

A crescendo leads into an urgent phrase lead by strings, then answered by horns. The action has jumped ahead and the Fellowship is barring the door to Balin’s tomb to keep out approaching Orcs. The music becomes more fevered as the Fellowship wait while the Orcs pound the door.

3:45

One last screeching crescendo on the violin and horns and drums take over the music. It becomes more pounding. As holes are made in the door, Legolas and Aragorn begin firing arrows.

4:12

The music reaches a peak as the door collapses.
