Forth Eorlingas

Forth Eorlingas is track 16 of the The Lord of the Rings: the Two Towers soundtrack, composed by Howard Shore, and featuring a solo by boy soprano Ben Del Maestro. The track is composed of two pieces of music from the film. The first part, from 0:00 to 0:58 is heard when the White Wizard is revealed to be Gandalf in Fangorn. The second part is heard when King Théoden leads his people out from Helm's Deep to a desperate battle agains the Uruk-Hai. The scene and the track culminates in the arrival of Gandalf on Shadowfax - followed by Éomer and the Rohirrim who charge down to join the battle, bringing hope and turning the tide of events.

Detailed notes on the music and lyrics can be found here at Magpie's Nest.

What catastrophe?

Eucatastrophe is a word coined by J.R.R. Tolkien, it means "a sudden and favorable resolution of events in a story; a happy ending" (Oxford American Dictionaries) - "the sudden happy turn in a story which pierces you with a joy that brings tears" (The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien, #89). What could be a more suitable word to describe the events this wonderful piece of music illustrates?
