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.
