Maybe it's pointless to post this 5 years down the line but I just feel compelled to say that, while I hear no resemblence to GLADIATOR anywhere in the score, the hobbit/shire theme IS actually VERY VERY similar to "Hymn to the Sea" from TITANIC - it's obviously just a reworking of that melody by Horner. You can compare the notes and it is clear to see.
