That theme that is heard in the Great River was also in the beginning of the film, in the prologue. It did not appear on the CD I believe, but I distinctly remember it from the opening. Maybe it's perhaps I've seen it four times that helps me remember that and that....oh, God I need a life! j/k
I think it is sort of a legend/historic theme.

As for my favorite tracks, alas, I have not had time to listen to this cd all the way! I don't know, but I'm finding it difficult to sit through it all the way. I like the black riders theme which is used primarily in the first half of the film. I bought this CD before the movie came out, and it was really interesting as I was also reading the book for the first time. When I came to chapter in the book entitled "The Bridge of Khazaad Dum", I played the track that accompanied the film. (I played the different tracks as I read each chapter) I would have to say that after reading the chapter and hearing the music, tears were definitely swelling up. That part of the movie was the reason I wanted to see it. It fit perfectly, and I am extremely grateful for that. It's kind of unfortunate that I will be reading the Two Towers soon without the next score being released, but then again, it will be a new experience.

Another track I really liked was Many Meetings. I thought it mirrored the feeling of Rivendell's peaceful aura and serenity. And when it changes into the hobbit theme as he sees Bilbo sitting on the bench, writing his book; (sigh) shivers and an extra heart beat. Beautiful music.
