How does one go on after Lord of the Rings trilogy?  Peter Jackson’s masterful work, encompassing over a decade of his life, bringing to fruition every detail and nuance of J.R.R. Tolkien’s legendary tome, and the music, tasked to Howard Shore (who, amazingly, in a previous life, was the original conductor of the Saturday Night Live orchestra) who created, in scope and detail and breadth, maybe the most amazing – in scale – soundtrack in modern film history, a modern day Ring Cycle that rivals that old anti-semite Wagner. In over twelve hours of music (with another nine for The Hobbit), Shore created dozens upon dozens of individual themes, including those for the Ring, Sauron, Mordor, The Shire, Frodo, Gollum, Rivendel, Aragorn,  Gandalf, Treebeard, Orks, et al. With six hundred minutes of film, and a budget of a third of a billion, that’s a lot of Middle Earth to fill.
