(CP) - Composer Howard Shore is writing more music for the Lord of the Rings but knows his love affair with Middle Earth must end. "It's still a work in progress. This morning I was writing music for the extended version of Return of the King," he said backstage after winning his Grammy for best score on Sunday. "It's really bittersweet because we've worked on it for so long and so hard, with great collaboration and true friendship. The Lord of the Rings is also our story. I felt like Frodo in the beginning." [more]
