"Aníron" is a song in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy soundtrack, originally accompanying the track "The Council of Elrond" in the first film. It is the theme for Aragorn and Arwen


Aníron means "I desire" in the constructed Elvish language of Sindarin. It is featured as part of the track "The Council of Elrond" on the soundtrack album The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. This song does not appear in Tolkien's writings; it was composed and sung by Enya, and the lyrics were written by Roma Ryan. The song was conducted by Howard Shore and performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra with Enya.

In November 2009, Enya released the album The Very Best of Enya. None of the songs on this recording are new, but the version of Aníron has alternate lyrics from the one heard in the movies or on any movie score recording.

Lyrics Edit


O môr henion i dhû:
Ely siriar, êl síla.
Ai! Aníron Undómiel.
Tiro! El eria e môr.
I ‘lîr en êl luitha ‘úren.
Ai! Aníron...

Common SpeechEdit

From darkness I understand the night
dreams flow, a star shines.
Ah! I desire Evenstar.
Look! A star rises out of the darkness.
The song of the star enchants my heart.
Ah! I desire....
