The Da Vinci Code
Hans Zimmer

68

The mystery of the blockbusting religion 'n' science fest is elegantly brought to life by Hans Zimmer.

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.
