Howard Shore's soundtrack is up six places

Canadian Howard Shore is one of those composers who writes great tunes and his work for The Lord of The Rings trilogy is no exception. Originally considered by some to have been a surprising choice of composer for this epic trilogy, Shore silenced his doubters by winning his first Oscar for this score which introduces Celtic music for the Hobbits with song contributions from Enya, and many powerful, mystical choral cues. Shore reworked his score into the wildly popular Lord of the Rings Symphony, which consists of six movements and is played and sung against a backdrop of on-screen images.
