Flute or Irish Whistle on Concerning Hobbits?   Thursday, July 8, 2004 (1:08 p.m.) 

Does anyone know what kind of flute or Irish whistle was used on the solo for Concerning Hobbits in the first LOTR soundtrack? If someone knows, I am also curious about the variations in this type of instrument, in regard to cost and build quality, that I assume would effect the sound. Any help on this would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Matt

That would be a recorder, not a whistle. I am almost positive of this. I'm not certain, though, so no one yell at me if I'm wrong.

>I came on trying to answer this same question. I was fooling around with my irish tin whistle(a common irish instrument) and i tried to play the LOTR hobbit theme. It sounded pretty close to the track in the movie

I have seen all of you say that its this and that.
I do not know what it is but I have an
Original Irish Whistle D tuned. Mand by Feadog in Ireland.
I was playing around with it and came up with a few notes that may be what you all are looking for. If this does not work right you can email me at dstair2002@yahoo.com Here goes nothing. Ok / is underlined accept on opened 5 it means 0/5 the first hole is not covered.

6 5 4 3 2 1 0 0/5 5/ 4/ 3/ 2/ 1/ 0/2

The instrument is most definitely an irish whistle, tuned to the key of D.

Does anyone have the sheet music for 'Concerning Hobbits' for the Irish Tin Whistle in D?? If so could you please send it to me? Thanks so much!! Have a great day!! Oh, also if anyone has this song or any of the others from the Fellowship of the Ring for Violin, could you please send it to me too? I can't find it anywhere! It's really frustrating! Thanks again!!!

Sorry, no joy on the sheet music, but I cam across this while looking up a Celtic band named Grada:

"Alan Doherty (flute/whistles/pipes) Alan has been in huge demand since his lead role in The Lord of the Rings soundtrack. He has just returned from a lengthy playing stint in Australasia and Europe. Highlights included a lead billing at the Woodford folk festival (Australia’s largest) and support acts for Joe Cocker, Blondie and, oddly enough, Metallica."

If I am not mistaken, the Whistle is a Generation D.

It's a pennywhistle.

How do I know this? Because I was in the recording studio with Howard Shore when he re-recorded this piece for the extended DVD version of the movie.
