Patrick Doyle: Ten Best Movie Soundtracks
When actor Kenneth Branagh set out to direct his first feature film, he asked his friend Patrick Doyle to compose music that was strong enough to make an emotional impact without overpowering Shakespeare’s verse. Doyle's score features the stirring chorus Non Nobis Domini, sung by Doyle himself on screen. It won Best Film Theme of 1989 at the Ivor Novello Awards. Doyle and Branagh have continued to collaborate and are currently working on a version of Cinderella, starring Helena Bonham Carter.
