    The Hobbit (1977) MIDI or sheet music?

    I'm trying to find some MIDI files or sheet music to the 1977 animated version of The Hobbit.
    Can anyone here help me with that?

    Here's what I've found so far:

    I have them as abc, but I'll be dipped if I can remember where I got them. I'll see if I can't back track to them.

    I am a long time Tolkien fan, and have several treasures from my youth, including the songbook from the Rankin/Bass animated version of 'The Hobbit' from 1977. It has 13 songs, one for each of the Dwarves in Thorin & Co (or so it seems), from the made-for-TV movie, the last two being reprises of earlier songs.

    I have only taken the time to create an ABC file for one of them. Here it is:

    Code:

    T:The Greatest Adventure (The Ballad of The Hobbit)

    As you may have guessed from the notation, I painstakingly executed this note-by-note without the aid of any fancy program, although having repeating verses saves some work. I inserted the dynamics, mezzo piano and mezzo forte, to account for chords sounding louder than single notes.

    While browsing through the site of the great composer and transcriber Astleigh, I saw that she has a solo and 4 part abc transcription of "The Greatest Adventure" from The Hobbit movie. Though you might like it.
