Into the West

Filed under: General — m759 @ 3:33 AM

Tonight I finally got around to seeing “Return of the King,”
the end of Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings  trilogy, and
listened to Annie Lennox sing “Into the West“* over the
closing credits.

Searching for some background on the song, I found it
was said to have been first publicly performed at the funeral
of a young New Zealand filmmaker, Cameron Duncan.

Duncan reportedly died in Houston, Texas,
on November 12, 2003. See posts from that day and
the day before now tagged ‘For Cameron Duncan.”

* There is a 1992 film with the same title about Irish Travellers.
