You know how sometimes you hear a song (noticeably instrumental in the film) and it kind of sounds familiar ?.? When we see Elijah Wood and Sean Astin together ( nearly every time after the quest begins ) the "haunting melody" can be heard - reminding us of their friendship and home, mostly.
In Church on Sunday we sang a hymn (modern) called (I think) "This Is My Father's World". Anybody out there know what one I'm talking about? Kinda quiet. Well, it is the same melody. Did someone borrow that melodic verse? On my CD copy of Reprise "The Lord Of The Rings : The Fellowship of the Ring" Orig. Motn. Pctr. Sndtrk. it is #17 , first flute then boy voice chorus with , of course, Hobbit words.
Beautiful piece and very adaptive and memorable. I just wondered if anyone else noticed and made the connection. I don't see any credit so I will attempt to find the exact title of the hymn. ~ J.R.R.
