[Update 3/6: The next day Viggo taught the audience the song! Scroll to end of page for the video.]

This has nothing to do with dwarves or The Hobbit, but…I don’t care! Just had to share this clip of Viggo Mortensen at a screening of the trilogy at Coolidge Theatre in Boston (he was there to accept a Coolidge award).  Greendragon of TORn posted the video on Youtube, (quality is blah, but that’s not what matters here since the audio captures the most fantastic part): Viggo sings Aragorn’s coronation hymn!  It is still shiver-inducing ten years later!

If you’d like just the song clip, here it is (right click and “save link as” for download) or listen here:

(You’ll notice you could hear a pin drop, that’s how rapt the audience is!)

Greendragon has even more incredible video to share, this time of Viggo teaching the audience how to sing the lyrics.  I think I would have died happy in my seat.  What a guy!
