The Two Towers, disc 3, track 8:

Retreat

Featuring "Haldir's Lament" performed by Elizabeth Fraser

[00:03-00:43] Haldir's Lament
From Howard Shore's dvd commentary: "Elizabeth Fraser sang the new piece that was written for Haldir's Death. It's a repeat of her voice which was used in Gandalf's Lament in Lothlórien. And she sang that very tragic lament. That was actually source music, it was the Elves singing in Lothlórien. You're hearing them in the trees. And the death of Haldir was written for Elizabeth to sing. So it brings back the sound of Lothlórien."

[04:26-04:32] The Rohan Fanfare
