Silva Screen Music: "GOOD OMENS" music by David Arnold


Composer David Arnold’s soundtrack to the highly anticipated TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s 1990 comic fable that packs a punch.

Following the odd couple, angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and demon Crowley (David Tennant) in their quest to sabotage the end of the World, Amazon Prime's six episode mini-series delivers a tongue in cheek adaptation of this powerful and funny story.

From the Award-winning composer of Sherlock and Casino Royale comes a soundtrack that perfectly complements the Good Omens’ drama and visual sensibilities. At times nostalgic and eerie but always varied, beautiful and full of excitement, this robust, yet funny music entity has become another character in the story. Here, Arnold has created a contemporary soundworld for heaven and hell.

The closing song is Tori Amos’ version of A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square, a British wartime favorite referenced at the end of the book, conjuring feelings of separation and pining for untroubled times, and including the lines "There was magic abroad in the air. There were angels dining at the Ritz. And a nightingale sang in Berkeley square".

Good Omens is produced by BBC Studios, Amazon Studios, Blank Corporation and Narrativia. The series is directed by Douglas Mackinnon and features the all-star cast including Michael Sheen, David Arnold, Frances McDorman, Brian Cox, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jon Hamm.

David Arnold is one of the UK’s leading film composers, composing scores for blockbusters including Stargate, The Chronicles of Narnia: the Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Hot Fuzz, Paul, Independence Day, 2 Fast 2 Furious and Casino Royale.

Also available on Silva Screen Records are David Arnold’s soundtracks Sherlock Series 1, Sherlock Series 2, Sherlock Series 3, Sherlock Series 4 and Sherlock - The Abominable Bride.

The Good Omens TV series launches on Amazon Prime Video around the world on Friday 31st May 2019 and will be shown on BBC2 in the autumn. [http://www.silvascreenusa.com]
