The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
Special Keepsake Songbook
Book features movie art and Elvish lyrics
MIAMI-Pianists everywhere can now explore the spirit and grandeur of the blockbuster hit The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, thanks to a matching songbook to the hit movie, recently released by Warner Bros. Publications.
The beautifully illustrated book captures the enchanting musical spirit behind this second film in the The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Like its predecessor, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, this second installment in the film trilogy features the soaring and powerful music of Howard Shore. A Canadian-born composer, Shore won an Academy Award for The Fellowship of the Ring, and his genius is equally evident in the music for The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.
Arranged for piano/vocal/chords, the Warner Bros. Publications book makes Shore’s music in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers readily accessible to students and performers of various experience levels. The book treats us to a delightful array of memorable songs from the film, including the hauntingly beautiful “Evenstar,” “Isengard Unleashed,” featuring Elizabeth Fraser and Ben Del Maestro, and “Gollum’s Song,” performed by Emiliana Torrini, as well as “Breath of Life,” “Rohan,” and “Forth Eorlingas.”
Printed on exquisite velvet crème paper stock, giving the book an antique tone throughout, the book includes 10 pages of dramatic color photos from the movie. The richly illustrated front and back covers also depict images that will be familiar to all fans of the film. Die-hard Lord of the Rings fans will love that the book features the Elvish lyrics to several songs.
“We expect this book to become a collector’s item,” said Jeannette Delisa, pop product line manager for Warner Bros. Publications. “The Lord of the Rings trilogy has left an indelible impression on many people from all walks of life. Fans will value this book as a keepsake.”
The Two Towers is the second Lord of the Rings songbook offered by Warner Bros. Publications (WBP). Fans of the film will want to build their Lord of the Rings print music collection by adding The Fellowship of the Ring collector’s songbook, produced by WBP. The company is also planning a keepsake collection from the forthcoming film, Return of the King.
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers companion songbook has a suggested retail price of $14.95, and makes a great collector’s item in time for the DVD and VHS release of the movie from New Line Home Video on August 26, 2003.
