DENETHOR, a theme associated with Gondor, is
related to the Ascension Setting of the
Realm of Gondor Theme
I had this as a
theme - with four scenes I thought used it - attributed to
Faramir before any official material was ever released on
themes. I had to wait for the CR-ROTK to find out what would
be said about it. Well, what's said about it was kind of
vague and The Music of the LOTR Films is not adding much.
A 'first heard' time
stamp was given which is the first iteration shown
below. The AS-ROTK did not mention the theme for that scene
but the AS portion of the book does.
The musical notation provided
for this theme is heard in the second
iteration listed below. Neither the
AS-ROTK nor the AS
portion of the book mentions the theme by name for this
iteration below was mentioned in the CR-ROTK liner notes'
discussion of Faramir and Denethor's theme.
Faramir's body is dragged back to the gate of Minas Tirith,
Shore intersperses perfect fifth leaps, weaving both settings of
the Gondor theme and providing a bleak moment of doubt just
before the Orcs launch their full attack on the city.
This line was
deleted from the theme's discussion in
The Music of the LOTR
Films and neither the
AS-ROTK nor the AS portion of the book
mentioned the them by name for this scene.
And the final
scene listed below is not discussed in context of this theme at all
in either the CR material or the the book.
It is about Faramir and Denethor and I believe it could
be related. So, for interests sake, I'm going to leave
