Following the theatrical release of The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy, Howard Shore reworked the film scores of the trilogy into a more structured six-movement work for orchestra and choir, loosely titled The Lord of the Rings Symphony.

It has been performed in various concert halls around the world, accompanied by a light and visual art show by Alan Lee and John Howe. Recordings of the symphony have yet to be released.
