I like original soundtracks. I love them in TV, I love them in film, I love them in video games, and I love them in anime. While working, they all make the bulk of the stuff I listen to. They’re often beautiful, exciting, and well-crafted without distracting me too much from the works that needs to be done. Now, there’s a new one for us to enjoy.
I think one of the strongest opening themes out there probably goes to Game of Thrones, but earlier this year, I think His Dark Materials took that honor with their mind-bending opening, and this was very much bolstered by composer Lorne Balfe’s impressive song.

But what about the rest of the music? Well, the soundtrack has officially been released online digitally, and you can check out all the streaming links HERE.
The score is performed by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales conducted by Matt Dunkley. The leading cast for His Dark Materials includes Dafne Keen as Lyra, Ruth Wilson as Mrs Coulter, Lin Manuel Miranda as Lee Scoresby, James McAvoy as Lord Asriel, Clarke Peters as The Master of Jordan College, James Cosmo as Farder Coram and Anne-Marie Duff as Ma Costa, with Will Keen as Father McPhail and Ariyon Bakare as Lord Boreal.
