Heart's cover of Led Zeppelin's Battle of Evermore sends me right into Pelennor Fields.

Agreed, Arveleg. Here's something I just found: http://youtu.be/lWNTTOTgemM and then there's my heroes: Sigur Ros: http://youtu.be/NUysiCX-XZQ

The score by Howard Shore for the movies. Though I certainly will not recognize what character or scenery is meant if I were only to hear the theme, I think a bell would ring for many, perhaps most of them.

I love that score! Once, some other site members and I played it on our insturments (violin for me, viola for lotrelessar and EthelynnGreenleaf, and cello for RodwenAravilui5136) and when we finished it, we were all dead silent,looking at each other. It just has an amazing feel to it and when I recall playing it, tears literally come to me eyes.
We were one in the same, running like moths to the flame. You'd hang on every word I'd say, but now they only ricochet.

That's on Zeppelin 4, the one with Stairway to Heaven.
How do the two versions compare (not that I’ve played the LP for years, might be a very good reason to do so)?

Adele McAllister
Apocalyptica (especially their older material)
Artesia
Avalon Rising/Broceliande (from USA)
Blind Guardian (from Germany)
The Fellowship of this album
The Moon and the Nightspirit (from Hungary)
Narsilion (from Catalonia)
Summoning (from Austria)
Vangelis (some may have heard of him too..)
Zen Garden (the album 'Talking Trees' in particular)

plus a few more isolated pieces here and there . . . obviously.

As regards distinctly cinematic composers, certain entities by people like Trevor Jones, Leonard Rosenman and James Newton Howard have come closest in "saying it" for me.

I always thought Battle of Evermore was one of the good songs on LZIV, with Stairway to Heaven being my least fav ever since I bought the album. Robert Plant & Sandy Denny do the vocals good, but maybe I'm biased toward the Wilson sisters as I think they nail this live.

Obviously, the soundtracks of both trilogies takes me there.
But other than that, there is an album by Mediaeval Baebes called "Mirabilis". They remind me of feasts and elves. Specially the song "Lhiannan Shee", I can imagine a group of elven women playing/singing it.

In my opinion, Mediaeval Baebes do capture Middle Earth, intentionally or unintentionally, in many of their songs.

Their music video 'Veni Veni Bella' from their 2012 album 'The Huntress' reminds me of a festival ball at Meduseld.

The song Gaia by Faun reminds me of Middle Earth, trekking through the deserts of Khand....

Every time I'm watching a movie and there's a scene in the countryside, my mind seems to manipulate the music into the Shire theme, and I end up humming it for the rest of the day

Music inspired by Middle Earth by David Arkenstone is quite a nice bit of music.
