Much Ado About Nothing
Patrick Doyle

94

Shakespeare is given the food of love thanks to Patrick Doyle's impish, humorous and delicately balanced score.

When Kenneth Branagh set about creating another classic Shakespeare adaptation in the form of Much Ado About Nothing, he called his long-term collaborator Patrick Doyle to compose the music. Not only did Doyle create a very accomplished score for the popular adaptation, but he also got himself a small role in the film itself, as Balthazar singing Sigh No More Ladies and Pardon, Goddess of the Night. In fact Patrick Doyle has built himself a bit of a reputation as being the new Alfred Hitchcock the way he appears in films he's worked on, with other appearances including 'Frankenstein', 'Hamlet' and most recently Pixar's Scottish adventure movie 'Brave'.
