Format: Paperback
Mostly I'm posting this review because there is no product information, or there wasn't when I bought it anyway. This is a piano book for intermediate pianists with many pieces having the vocal part written in as well (including lyrics and translations, as many of the lyrics are in Elvish.)

The songs included are:

from the Fellowship of the Ring, "The Prophecy*", "Concerning Hobbits", "The Black Rider", "Many Meetings", "Lament for Gandalf*", "In Dreams*" and "May It Be*";

from the Two Towers, "Rohan", "Evenstar*", "Breath of Life*", "Forth Eorlingas*", "Isengard Unleashed*", and "Gollum's Song*";

from the Return of the King, "Minas Tirith*", "The Steward of Gondor*", "Twilight and Shadow*", "The End of All Things*", "The Return of the King*", and "Into the West*".

*includes vocal part(s).

As far as I can tell, all the vocal lines are part of the piano lines, this is *not* a book of vocal solos with piano accompaniment. Two things that I would have liked in this book: spiral binding so it can lay flat, and music for "The White Tree".

I have been wanting to get my hands on this music for a while now, and this is the best book available. Although I would have liked the book to be more complete (there are several notable omissions from the full score), what the book does include is extraordinary.

It is essentially all of the previous three volumes of the LOTR solo piano books stuffed in to one epic book plus the added arrangements of "Concerning Hobbits" and "The Black Rider". The arrangement for "Aniron (Theme for Aragorn and Arwen)" by Enya is not included.

Songs Included Are:

from The Fellowship of the Ring:
THE PROPHECY
CONCERNING HOBBITS
THE BLACK RIDER
MANY MEETINGS
IN DREAMS
MAY IT BE

from The Two Towers:
ROHAN
EVENSTAR
FORTH EORLINGAS
ISENGARD UNLEASHED
GOLLUM'S SONG

from The Return of the King:
MINAS TIRITH
THE STEWARD OF GONDOR (Including "THE EDGE OF NIGHT")
TWILIGHT AND SHADOW
THE END OF ALL THINGS
THE RETURN OF THE KING
INTO THE WEST

The arrangements are good and true to the originals and are intended for intermediate to advanced pianists. Of the songs included, they are complete and unabridged-- direct copies of the originals. Although it does not specify in the product description, a little less than half of the songs have chords notated above the melody line. The book itself is very nice and it stuffed with brilliant full color photos from all three films-- although as to what practical purpose they actually serve, I can only guess-- but they are nice to look at. I would have liked the book to include more songs from the films, but until a more complete edition is released (if ever), this book does satisfy. I highly recommend this book to fellow pianists who are fans of the LOTR Trilogy Music.

I was excited to get this book in. I was mostly looking forward to "Concerning Hobbits" and "Into the West." "Concerning Hobbits" is great, but I was really disappointed in "Into the West." It's just the piano accompaniment with the melody/solo line above it. I would have liked a more "piano solo." You can hardly tell what it is just playing the piano part from this book. I love that song, so I'm going to keep looking for a true 'piano solo' arrangement. And I wish "Grey Havens" was in this book, but it's not. But if you like most of the music from the trilogy, absolutely get this book. It's a great value, and cheaper on Amazon than on other sheet music sites, though I think delivery time might have been longer.

I really love the Lord of the Rings. I think the cinematography is breathtaking and the acting is well done, and I've always enjoyed the music, but as I started to play the songs from this book, I realized that most of the music from Lord of the Rings doesn't sound particularly good on its own. There are a few songs like "Concerning Hobbits" and "In Dreams" that I've enjoyed playing as 'piano solos.' However, the rest of the music is choppy or it has a singing part that steals all of the melody. For the amount of music I am able to play and enjoy from this book, I have not felt that it was worth my money.

I wish it had all been piano solos as the name implied. Most of the book is easily playable and fun. However, some songs that include vocal, don't include it along with the piano part, but as a melody line above, with the piano part below as the accompaniment. It might have been nicer to keep the words but have more elaborate strictly piano solo arrangements.

The piano arrangement is rather incomplete, sounds rather awkward in places. There are many different ways to arrange a song for solo piano and achieve the same effect the full orchestration gives. This one doesn't give that effect.

The music is well written but as a piano teacher I would not consider this advanced level . Nice photos

Don't get me wrong: I love, love, LOVE the soundtracks from this trilogy. I just have issues with this songbook version.

Bottom line? This is how you buy the official music for "The Black Rider" and "Concerning Hobbits." Beyond that, I don't use this edition very often.

I thought this book would be a single volume to carry around instead of worrying about keeping 3 separate books together. As it turns out, this edition might have been a marketing scheme. Alright, people screamed for "Concerning Hobbits" to be included in a book, and it is. I'm happy to have an extra song, as well as "The Black Rider" (a little more challenging to play, but a nice display of a dark/moody theme).

Yet I really don't understand why they would include two new songs and OMIT two that did originally show up in the separate volumes. "Use Well the Days" was not ultimately used in the movies (you can hear it on the bonus DVD of the limited edition "Return of the King" soundtrack), but it's still a lovely song - and obviously, the publishers thought enough of it to include it in printed form (a very unusual move, by the way). "Aniron" was major news in its day and received quite a lot of buzz. I'm just confused why the publisher would have switched out 2 songs. I could understand budgetary reasons for just plain *reducing* an anthology, but why change some of it? I suppose there may have been copyright issues with "Aniron" (and I have my doubts about this), but that doesn't explain why "Use Well the Days" disappeared.

Additionally, this is not purely a piano solo album (as others have noted). Amazon will hopefully change the description errors at some point.
