[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!
