Yesterday I have read for  first time “Tolkien gesture” by Alan Mearns, irish composer.
The work, a suite composed by independent movements and without thematic connections, is divided in:

Mirkwood Forest (dark, mysterious)
Queen Galadriel (luminous, harp like)
Treebeard (slow, cumbersome)
Wraiths (menacing, agitated)
Gandalf escapes on the Great Eagle (ad libitum)
Dance of Rivendell (lively, mischievous)

The work is published by MelBay
