Solo trumpet calls out the Rohan Fanfare over rolling field drums. The riders take their final pause before arriving at Minas Tirith. The line ends with a subtle nod to the Fellowship theme, indicative of just how far the tenets of the Company have come. Merry explains to Éowyn that he knows his own limitations, but that he rides on not in hopes of saving Middle-earth, but simply to save his friends. The thoughtful strains of Merry the Warrior return.
Horns and trumpets call open intervals, acting as the war horns of the Rohirrim. They will ride through the night, and arrive at Minas Tirith at dawn to meet the Orc host.
