The Return of the King, disc 1, track 9:

Éowyn's Dream

[00:26-01:25] Éowyn and Aragorn
The celebration at Edoras has subsided. Most of the revelers having long since bedded down, Aragorn wanders alone, pausing to stoke the dying fire in the Golden Hall. Nearby, Éowyn stirs, waking from a dream. As she tells Aragorn of her dream, in which she saw herself alone, thrust into an utterly dark abyss, a lush setting of the Éowyn and Aragorn theme plays. Aragorn comforts her, telling her to return to sleep, and the second phrase, the section of the theme that was cut short during the party, finally completes the melody.
