The Lord of the Rings voted the nation’s favourite film score for sixth year in a row

The iconic music for Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings has topped the Classic FM Movie Music Hall of Fame for the sixth year in a row – narrowly beating John Williams’ score for Schindler’s List and, in third place, Hans Zimmer’s music for Gladiator.
We spoke to Elijah Wood who plays Frodo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. He said:
“The music is a huge part of the identity of those films. Think about the Hobbiton theme – it’s really iconic, the music transcends the films themselves. We hear those pieces of music, we know those films.”
