The Return of the King, disc 1, track 5:

Return to Edoras

[01:02-01:21] The Rohan Fanfare
From the Annotated Score: "The mode shifts to A minor and the rasp of the Hardanger fiddle sings the score's first statement of the Rohan Fanfare. The story returns to Edoras, the capital of Rohan. The Rohirrim are honoring the bravery displayed at Helm's Deep, and remembering their fallen comrades. Shore sets the Rohan theme in an elegant six beats per measure, lending it both a heroic lilt and a songful, elegiac quality."
