Text by Philippa Boyens

Music by Howard Shore

Translated into Sindarin by David Salo


Title, Original English and Sindarin Translation found on the DVD that came with the ROTK Special Edition Soundtrack CD.  The English Original and the use of the Sindarin translation in the lyrics are found in the MusicNotes sheet music.

 

The AS-ROTK says this song is first heard in the CR-ROTK, Disc 4, Track 2, Crack of Doom. However the MusicNotes sheet music specify these lyrics as being used for the scenes: Frodo claims the Ring, Gollum claims the Ring, Frodo fights Gollum for the Ring. The music for those scenes appear in Disc 4, Track 1, Mount Doom so I believe this is a mistake.

 

The ROTK Live Symphony choir lyrics indicate text from this source song is sung during Frodo's Seduction by the Ring, just after Sam says, "Just let go". For more info, go HERE.

 

Sung by Renée Fleming (Gollum claims the Ring)

Mi naurath Orodruin Into the fires of Orodruin
Boe hedi i Vin. The One must be cast.
Han i vangad i moe ben bango. This the price that must be paid.
Sin eriol natha tűr în úgarnen Only thus its power will be undone,
Sin eriol űm beleg úgannen Only thus a great evil unmade.
Ú cilith 'war There is no other choice,
Ú men 'war There is no other way.
Boe min mebi One of you must take it,
Boe min bango One of you must pay.
