I have tried to compromise between where you can hear these syllables in the music, and how they are paired on the sheet music. If the time stamp is the same for the solo and the chorus, it means those two syllables are sung together as written on the sheet music. Due to the fluidity of the solo artist, they may not have been sung exactly at the same time on the soundtrack and therefore, one of the two time stamps may not be exact.

Scene: You will taste manflesh

CR-FOTR Track: The Fighting Uruk-hai; 3-4 (it would be here if it were on the CD)

Source Text: A Moth in Isengard

 

These three short syllables are sung during the FOTR Live! Symphony but are not included in the movie's soundtrack nor are they on any CD. The are sung in conjunction with thee soft horn notes as Saruman says, "Do not stop until they are found. You do not know pain. You do not know fear. You will taste manflesh!" The three syllables, spelled phonetically: Noor Roo Soo. The only match is from the source text is "A Moth in Isengard" which is the only song to have been associated with Isengard.

I'm still a bit unsure on these lyrics and they're not in the FOTR Live choral music (being from an extended scene). Presented is a suggestion two people (Danijel and Aty) have mostly agreed on.

 

Doug Adams writes in the FOTR Annotated Score:

Music was written and recorded for the Theatrical edit of the gift giving scene. Although this shorter Theatrical version was released on the 2001 original soundtrack CD, the longer DVD version was actually composed earlier. When the DVD edit of Fellowship was assembled, Shore went back and recorded the composition he had originally written, and included it in the film.

This short segment is not in the movie. I suspect it was put into the CR to make a smoother transition between the loud raucous music used for the Aragorn vs. Lurtz battle and the softer music used as Aragorn goes to the mortally wounded Boromir.

May it be an evening star
Shines down upon you
May it be when darkness falls
Your heart will be true
You walk a lonely road
Oh! How far you are from home

Mornie utúlië
Believe and you will find your way
Mornie alantië
A promise lives within you now

May it be the shadow's call
Will fly away
May it be you journey on
To light the day
When the night is overcome
You may rise to find the sun

Believe and you will find your way

A promise lives within you now

When the cold of Winter comes
Starless night will cover day
In the veiling of the sun
We will walk in bitter rain

But in dreams
I can* hear your name
And in dreams
We will meet again

When the seas and mountains fall
And we come to end of days
In the dark I hear a call
Calling me there
I will go there
And back again

These time stamps work with the Complete Recordings of the FOTR. If the song is on the regular or special edition CDs, you could find those timestamps on that track's cue by cue. To determine which track any song is on, you could consult the Master Lyrics List for the FOTR.

Numbers after the scene indicate Disc and Track.

Sources for these lyrics as sung and their timestamps were developed over time, from many resources, and by many people. The most current source we have are the phonetic lyrics given to the choir for the FOTR Live to Projection Symphony. The work of figuring how to match source material with the phonetic lyrics and how to set them with timestamps has been done primarily by Sabsi with proofing and additional contributions by Danijel and myself.

Not all singing that's heard in the movies or on CDs is included in the FOTR Live Symphony. Some are from extended scenes (and the Live to Projection series involves the theatrical editions of the movies) or from Fan Club scrolls. Or maybe they're an alternate version of score found on one of the CDs. For those pieces, we are left utilizing a variety of resources---all limited in their own way. These include:

  • The FOTR Annotated Score : This provides only the sketchiest of information about the lyrics. We are only told in which track each source song is used first. Successive uses aren't indicated and neither are we told which lines are sung.

  • Musical notation : These sources include primarily MusicNotes sheet music and notation found in the CR Liner notes.

  • Our own ears : This is the resource we started with that we relied upon greatly. Sometimes is served us well. Sometimes not. I once said, "Although we all are exacting in our labors, our ears are human, not Elven. We are making our best guesses sometimes. One of us hears 'ah' and the other hears 'nah'. I also am beginning to suspect that there's quite a bit of counterpoint singing going one, either between a choir and a soloist, or between different sections of the choir. We may never know what some of these lyrics are for sure."

    For those songs that are not in the FOTR Live Symphony, we may-in fact-never know what's sung for sure. There has never been any eagerness to provide this information in any official way. Whether the lyrics as sung followed the source text in a comprehensible way or not, Shore's intention was: "It’s more about sound than about meaning." (comment by Doug Adams) So, if it's not supposed to 'make sense' (the thinking goes), there's no reason for us to know what is being sung. My point is, I don't care if it makes sense either. I just want to sing along. So far, my point hasn't been proven persuasive.

Thanks: as I said before, all of the most recent work involving the TT Live Symphony has been done by Sabsi with some help from Danijel and myself. Whether that information confirmed what we had before or completely replaced what we thought before or filled in what we had no clue before... lots of people contributed to what we 'had before'. Those people include:
