THE BATTLE OF BUNKER HILL score available for download at Itunes and CD Baby

Monday, February 22nd, 2010 by Anna

John Morgan and I have composed this new score for the documentary THE BATTLE OF BUNKER HILL available for download at iTunes and CD Baby. In addition to coming up with many original themes, we used a lot of traditional tunes from the period including William Billings’ “Chester” and “Yankee Doodle”. The score is somewhat robust at times and, I would say, sounds a little as if Bernard Herrmann and Max Steiner had written a score together. I realize that that is a bold statement, but you’ll get what I mean when or if you hear it. The director, Tony Malanowski, is a huge fan of the Golden Age scores, so it was a lot of fun to work on. – William Stromberg
