Videos of LOTR Tunes


Recommended Posts

I have English concertina scores arranged by Tam Blaxter for the Lord of the Rings songs "May it Be" and "In Dreams".  I've been trying to find video or audio of what these sound like on the English concertina.  I'm a beginning player myself and having examples to listen to would be a great help.  Any suggestions?

Here's In Dreams (following your request on Facebook).


I didn't know it, or anything about it (probably don't watch enough films, and certainly don't remember them!), so the speed I picked ended up a little faster than the original. Also... I played it as written (except for the addition of a low A which seems essential in bar 31), even though some of the arrangement is a little odd (and, now I listen, different to the soundtrack!).

As it turns out, I've done a recording of Concerning Hobbits (The Shire) just recently. My video will be up on YouTube tomorrow, along with the sheet music on MuseScore. It's an Anglo Concertina, not English, but you might still be interested
