      I have to say I rarely remember movie music after just one hearing, but the tune for this one has stuck with me.

      Don't forget Bombur's drum! And there were not two but three flutes (which you call pipes), played by Dori, Nori, and Ori.

      Do any musical settings of "Far over the misty mountains" actually use Tolkien's specified instrumentation?
