5. The Da Vinci Code
Hans Zimmer produced a powerful spine-tingling score, full of chanting monks and ethereal sopranos, for Ron Howard's adaptation of The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown_s hugely successful novel. With a huge orchestra at his desposal, Zimmer set out to create what he described as a dramatic stained glass cathedral feeling, in keeping with the film's religious subject. The score was recorded at London's Abbey Road, and Zimmer would go on to receive a nomination at the 2007 Golden Globes for Best Original Score for his work.
