The mountain stronghold of the kings of Rohan is the chosen last defensive
position against the attack of the 10,000-strongUruk Hai ork army of Saruman. In
this piece, like the citadel, the themes are bold and the structure is solid, but the shifting 5/8 rhythm - sometimes 2+3, sometimes 3+2 and sometimes,
Indeterminate - suggests just a hint that all is not secure as it seems and there may be something unsound in the foundations.
