One of Field's famous pieces is Gothic Power. Field composed and recorded Gothic Power for the trailer for the first installment of The Lord of The Rings trilogy. Director Peter Jackson reportedly had to have Gothic Power as the main theme. Gothic Power was also at the intersection of the then-new downloading phenomenon, and the fan frenzy over the movie trilogy. New Line Cinema posted the trailer for The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, on-line. The fans went crazy for Gothic Power, and when the trailer went live on the internet, it was downloaded 1.7 million times on the first day, which still stands as a record. Field achieved world wide fame with this orchestral piece, now recognized as a classical recording, in its own right. Click Trailer Video Clips to hear the full glorious version of Gothic Power!
