Is it Monday yet?!

Film Score Monthly has a good review of the soon-to-be-released score CD to Return of the King today.

Also, has a good, long interview with Lord of the Rings composer Howard Shore. How does a newly composed symphony, involving six movements and based on themes from all three films, sound? Or a boxed set sometime next year, comprising hours upon hours of heretofore unreleased LOTR music? (Keep in mind that the score CDs are 70 minutes long, while the films are each in excess of three hours!)

And somewhere (but I can't remember where, so I'll see if I can find a link later) I read about a possible book about the LOTR music, which would be an outstanding thing for film music lovers. It's a genre that doesn't get nearly enough interest, scholarly or otherwise.
