The Shire and the Hobbits

The Hobbit Outline Figure accompaniment

Appears in:

1|1|3 Bag End
[01:49-02:04] Played on what sounds like a harp or a plucked string instrument.
1|1|4 Very Old Friends
[02:41-03:05] Very soft and slow - almost too soft to make out at all.
1|1|7 Keep it Secret, Keep it Safe
2|2|6 The Forests of Ithilien
[02:15-02:53] Liner notes (DA): "When he delivers a brace of coneys to Frodo and Sam, Gollum is accompanied by a grunting variation on the Hobbit Outline Figure scored for contrabass clarinet, contrabassoon and cimbalom."
