The Council of Elrond is a very significant event in the Lord of the Rings story. It is where the people of Middle-Earth, Elves, Men, and Dwarves (and Hobbits!) meet to decide the fate of the One Ring.

Again, the music of this track accurately portrays the events occurring in the film. It is a serious situation and the music reflects that. There is much tension at the Council and many disputes over where the Ring should go. Gimli gets upset over the thought of the Ring going to an Elf. Gimli even attempts to destroy it with his axe even though that is not possible.

Boromir attempts to get the ring for Gondor, and Gandalf is forced to hold him back - by uttering in the tongue of Mordor no less. It is also publicly displayed here that Aragorn is the heir to the throne of Gondor. Legolas uses this point as an attack on Boromir for disrespecting Aragorn.

In the end, Frodo steps forward to take the Ring to Mordor. Aragorn, Boromir, Legolas, Gimli, Gandalf, Merry, Pippin, and Sam are to be his companions.

The singing by Enya is also fantastic. Enya captures the spirit of the Lord of the Rings with her incredible voice, for the scene between Aragorn and Arwen.

It is also worth mentioning that the Council of Elrond has a significant amount of footage added in the special extended version of the movie. Watching the extended version really adds a lot to this scene and gives a better background. The scene in the normal version feels quite brief.

"A gift to the foes of Mordor. Why not use this Ring? Long has my father, the Steward of Gondor kept the forces of Mordor at bey. By the blood of our people are your lands kept safe. Give Gondor the weapon of the enemy, let us use it against him " - Boromir at the Council of Elrond

"Renech i lu i erui govannen? (Do you remember when we first met?)"
"Nauthannem i ned ol reniannen. (I thought I had strayed into a dream.)"
"Gwenwin in enninath...U-arnech in naeth i si celich. (Long years have passed...You did not have the cares you carry now.) Renech i beth i pennen? (Do you remember what I told you?)" - Aragorn and Arwen


O môr henion i dhû

Ai! Aníron Undómiel.

Tiro! El eria e môr.
