The Boat - The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power OST [2021]


The urgently undulating figures of the Galadriel ostinato contrast starkly with the long, soaring tones of her theme. This scene with the paper boat marks one of the only times her ostinato will appear in this pure form, with long legato string notes. For the majority of the first season, this ostinato will be played in tremolo strings, combining it with another theme, one the audience will hear shortly.

If that announcement weren't enough, you can listen to some of the music right now. Two new songs from "The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power" are now streaming on Amazon Music. Those are "Galadriel" and "Sauron," both composed by Bear McCreary. I don't have a subscription to listen, but as sad as that is, at least I know we're getting closer to the premiere. The story of how the 19 rings of power that caused all that trouble were created will premiere on Prime Video on September 2, 2022. I cannot wait. Here's the official description:


Prime Video's The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth's history. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien's pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness. Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.


The Rings of Power starts with a young Galadriel, who is later played by Morfydd Clark, building a little origami boat. She's not in Middle-earth just yet, but in the kingdom of Valinor, in a peaceful time before Morgoth's destruction, and much before Sauron ever wielded a powerful ring. However, there's still some disruption, as a bunch of other child Elves tease Galadriel and say her boat won't float. She says it won't float: "It will sail."


One of the greatest of the Elves in Middle-earth, she surpassed nearly all others in beauty, knowledge, and power. She bore Nenya, one of the three Elven rings of power. J.R.R. Tolkien deemed her as one of the mightiest and fairest of all Elves remaining in Middle-earth in the Third Age.


After remaining hidden for five centuries, Sauron reappeared. With the intention of taking over Middle-earth, he named himself the next Dark Lord. By SA 1000, Sauron had established a stronghold in the land of Mordor in eastern Middle-earth. There, he began building the dark fortress Barad-dûr near Mount Doom. With his powers of manipulation and cunningness, Sauron quickly lured followers, soon amassing armies of Orcs and Trolls. He was also able to sway many nations of Men, such as the Easterlings and Haradrim, to his side. Next, Sauron sought to bring the Elves into his service, so he disguised himself as Annatar, Lord of Gifts, to seduce them. The Elves helped Sauron forge the Rings of Power. In secret, Sauron also forged the One Ring, to rule all other rings, in the fires of Mount Doom in Mordor. But when the Elves discovered the power of Sauron's One Ring, they removed their own Rings of Power. Sauron was enraged, and he initiated a war against the Elves. He demanded that all Rings of Power be given to him. The Elves were able to hide the three strongest rings from Sauron, but 16 other Rings of Power ended up in Sauron's hands. Sauron gave seven of the Rings to Dwarves, who remained resistant to their powers, but the Rings did foster in the Dwarves feelings of greed and an insatiable lust for gold. The nine other Rings went to Humans, who were indeed corrupted by the powers of the Rings. These nine Men became the Nazgûl, or Ringwraiths, Sauron's most dreaded servants. At the end of the Second Age, Sauron was defeated by Isildur, who was able to cut the Ring from Sauron's hand. Isildur was then urged to destroy the Ring by casting it into Mount Doom, which would have banished Sauron from Middle-earth forever. But charmed by the Ring's powers, Isildur was unable to destroy it, leaving a window for Sauron's return. 041b061a72
