Current Mood:Still busy!!
My dear friend Blossom has been telling me something very interesting about the final track on 'ROTK:The Complete Recordings' which is due out on 6 Nov. This is what she said:

"The final track is 'Bilbo's Song,' and contains an Elvish translation of the book poem, 'I sit beside the fire and think...' It's performed by a boys' choir, and is achingly beautiful. Apparently it is Howard Shore's 'Thank You and Goodbye' to the fans. As it transpires, the piece is actually featured on the ROTK Extended Edition DVD, right at the end of the fan club credits"

I had no idea about that!! Blossom has very kindly provided a download link to this for anyone who would like to hear it without having to dig out their dvd!!

Many thanks, Blossom:)

Thank you SO much for this link...
This song is so beautiful, it makes me cry... I don't know why but it kind of symbolises the end of all this great and wonderful adventure to me... Even if in my heart I know that it will never truly end, it just makes me so nostalgic when I hear this song...

Thanks for featuring the link to Bilbo's Song in a separate post, Pauline. I don't know why, but whenever I post a link on LJ, it always shows up as normal text, never blue and highlighted - perhaps it's because I post as 'anonymous.'

Anyway, I'm so pleased to know that the link works OK and that you all like the song. It's so beautiful.

Always a pleasure to share the goodies.

Blossom.

Blossom and NotAlone, thank you so very much for posting this. I did not remember the song, and it is so peaceful, so comforting, so beautiful. I just finished reading 'Children of Hurin' and I long for hobbits - this is a perfect blend of Bilbo's words and a tune that sounds like his with an elven tone.

Wow. Thank you!!!

And many thanks to you for providing the link:) I still can't believe I missed this on the ROTK DVD - I know I've played it right through the credits several times!!

I'm not really sure why this is - I suppose it could be because you're 'anonymous':)
