Canadian composer Glenn Buhr (who I generally hold in high regard) composed a tone poem kind of piece called Beren and Luthien which was formerly commercially available on CBC records.  Not The Lord of the Rings exactly, but as one of our AMF fellow members is fond of saying, "relevant".   Grin

Bax's 'Nympholept' (Bryden Thompson) was once used, very effectively I thought, as music accompanying a TV documentary about Tolkein years ago. Since then I've rather associated it with Lord of the Rings although of course it has no actual connection to the book. Sibelius's Four Legends for Orchestra also has something of the ambience of Lord of the Rings.
