Bit of old news, but worth mentioning here, I feel.
This historic release contains over 180 minutes of music on three CDs, comprising the full score of the 2002 film, composed by Howard Shore. "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, The Complete Recordings" marks the second edition of the three complete recording releases of the film trilogy whose score has been honored with three Academy Awards, four Grammy Awards and two Golden Globe Awards, and which has sold over 6 million copies worldwide. This deluxe set also includes exclusive new artwork, packaging, extensive liner notes written by Doug Adams, and "Gollum's Song" performed by Emiliana Torrini.
Composed for symphony orchestra and choir, "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, The Complete Recordings" was performed by London Philharmonic Orchestra, The London Voices, The London Oratory School Schola featuring vocal performances by Emiliana Torrini, Isabel Bayrakdarian, Sheila Chandra, Elizabeth Fraser, Ben Del Maestro and cast member Miranda Otto.
The fourth disc is a DVD-Audio presenting the entire "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, The Complete Recordings" in 5.1 Surround Sound.
The release was sort of stirring in the back of my mind for most of the year, and I think the thing I was thinking most was, "Would three CDs will sufficient to cover the entirety of The Two Towers score?" Assuming they use the full 74-80 minute capacity, it should definitely suffice, right?
