Howard Shore returns to Middle Earth

Last year, you voted Lord Of The Rings as your favourite film soundtrack. Howard Shore tells us about it, and about reuniting with Peter Jackson for The Hobbit.

Howard Shore has written over 80 film scores, including the block busting Lord of the Rings trilogy. He spoke to Classic FM about the four year journey it took to compose the epic films and about taking inspiration from author JRR Tolkien's love of nature.

So successful has his relationship with LOTR director Peter Jackson been, the pair have been reunited to deliver the forthcoming Middle Earth blockbuster (and Lord Of The Earth prequel), The Hobbit.
