How about a theme for Aragorn/Estel/Hope? I've been combing through the Music sub-forum and we don't really have anything for him. This could be an evolving theme, from a more choral, even hymnal sound in Rivendell, a Hardanger fiddle for Thorongil in Rohan, and more of a fanfare sound in Minas Tirith.

Contrast two versions of the Realm of Gondor theme; the first is in french horn, heard at the Council of Elrond, the second is a brighter fanfare in Faramir's flashback to the taking of Osgiliath, both renditions in d-minor.

Another theme suggestion: Professor Olsen said he didn't want a love theme for any couple in general, but would one that's heard between romances between Elves and Men work? It had been an idea of mine with Aegnor and Andreth with an incomplete theme for unrequited love (which wasn't picked up for reasons unknown to me) and there would be variations on various relationships, a women's choir following low brass for Túrin and Finduilas symbolizing her want for him which he doesn't realize. This would contrast, say, Tuor and Idril, whose relationship develops gradually before they approach Turgon, who approves their love.

In the case of Beren and Lúthien and Aragorn and Arwen, perhaps the same theme but shuffled around for Aragorn and Arwen?

I really like this idea! That theme could be used for several characters in the show:
- Andreth & Aegnor
- Beren & Lúthien
- Túrin & Finduilas
- Tuor & Idril
- Imrazôr & Mithrellas
- Aragorn & Arwen

Maybe also Dior & Nimloth and Eärendil & Elwing?
