Trailer Music   Wednesday, June 18, 2003 (7:43 p.m.) 

Does anybody know what the music they used for the TT trailer is? It is played at the end of the trailer and sounds very powerful and glorious...

Thanks!

The name of the song is called "Requiem for the Rings" and if u have Kazaa or Napster.. then you can track it down. It was too dificult to find it without the help of a friend who has Kazaa. It is very powerful and I listen to it over and over again!

I love that music, and became obsessed with it when I first heard the trailer. Quite powerful, I listen to it over and over...

I have two versions. One is the one from the trailer, here: http://www.aaws.net/lore/twotowers.mp3
The other is a significantly longer one (about 6 minutes), greatly extended. It gets good at about 2:25. Get it here: http://www.aaws.net/lore/twotowers2.mp3

Glad I could be of help!

Any chance of someone posting the links again for "The Two Towers" version. The full orchestra version basically. I was told it's 13 min long.

Uhmmmm yeah, could i second that maybe? I love that music [which has been credited to Clint Mansell, Dan Nielsen, Mozart, and Ligeti, as well as Morten Lauridsen.. I dunno what/who it really is, I just want it!] from the trailers, and it *sounds* an awful like an orchestrated version of music used in Requiem For A Dream. I didn't think of looking for it a year ago, and the links posted earlier in this thread are broken now, it seems.

wow, im late to this topic. I was wondering, could someone post the link to this music? ive tried the other links and they wont work anymore. If part of it is from the requiem by mozart I could probaly I.D. it. I have performed this piece a couple of times and it still gives me goose bumps because of its awesomeness and complexity.

The music from the trailer is an original music trailer "composed" by Dan Nielsen. I don't think it's really called REQUIEM FOR A RING. The point is that ,in fact, this music is inspired (I could even say "copied") by the theme from REQUIEM FOR A DREAM composed by Clint Mansell and originally performed by The Kronos Quartet. I found it with WINMX : use keywords like "two towers", "trailer"...

The original score of REQUIEM FOR A DREAM is absolutely fabulous, but unlike LOTR:TTT trailer, it's not a bombastic full-"orchestra" music.

As told already there are 2 well-known versions (Requiem for a dream and the TTT-trailer). But if you search a little bit more you'll find there are 4 versions. The 2 other versions are:
1. the original "Lux Aeterna" was composed by W.A. Mozart
2. the version played in 2001, A Space Odyssey performed by Gyorgy Ligeti

Gyorgy Ligeti is the author!!   Tuesday, September 2, 2003 (1:40 a.m.) 

It appears, that that powerful music was written by Gyorgy Ligeti in 1960s, Mozart didn`t do that. That came as a surprise to me and I learned to respect the hungarian composer, I`ve never known before. Really, its name is worth Lux Aeternae, the music is something I am going to show my children one day. That music is a classic

Hey. I've gotten a lot of e-mails about that music because of my post here. I am apparently credited with its discovery.

The links in my earlier post do not work anymore. The new links can be found as follows:
Short Version: http://www.aaws.net/lore/music/twotowers.mp3
Long Version: http://www.aaws.net/lore/music/twotowers2.mp3

I am very happy to be of help.
