The story moves forward to the waning years of the Third Age of Middle-earth as we are introduced to the Shire. The short piece
of music that ushers us into the hobbits' homeland was originally written for the theatrical cut of the film, but the early Shire
scenes were shortened when the Prologue was lengthened, so Shore's introductory music went unheard until the DVD edit. "We
had the piece and I'd almost finished orchestrating it", the composer recalls. "It didn't have much of the full Shire theme in it yet,
because it was just showing the history
of the Shire in a montage. Now, you
actually hear the Rural fiddle theme
first, then the Pensive setting theme
developing from it." Here too, Shore
begins to utilize his Celtic assortment
of instruments, including bodhrán,
dulcimer, Celtic harp, musette, mandolin
and guitar.
Also introduced are the Two-Step
Figure, the End Cap, the Hobbit Skip
Beat and a more developed statement
of the Fellowship theme used under
the film's title graphic.
