The Two Towers, disc 2, track 15:

Faramir's Good Council

[00:00-00:51] The Pity of Gollum (Sméagol's Theme)
From the Annotated Score: Captured and beaten, Sméagol weeps. A familiar voice returns - it is Gollum taunting Sméagol. The Pity theme's opening passes from harp to strings to woodwinds, shattered throughout the ensemble, trying to collect itself, but unable to cohere. The bits collide and clot instead, building to a close-voiced collection of pitches as nasty Gollum reclaims the gangrel creature's dichotomous psyche."
[01:31-01:59] The Seduction of the Ring *
