The Return of the King, disc 2, track 2:

The Stairs of Cirith Ungol

[01:18-01:26] The History of the Ring
From the AS-ROTK: Frodo struggles to maneuver the rocks and pitches forward, revealing the Ring around his neck. Gollum sees it, his gaze transfixed. The orchestra twitches in aleatoric discomfort as Gollum reaches towards Frodo. The History of the Ring plays out clearly, tempting Gollum's hand, inviting it.
[01:40-01:50] The History of the Ring *
Magpie: This would probably be heard when Gollum says, "Master carries a heavy burden. A heavy, heavy burden. Sméagol knows."
