Historical Music in a TV Series: a Chat with David Fallis, Historical Music Producer for The Tudors



A live presentation by David Fallis, Historical Music Producer for the hit TV series 'The Tudors' and 'The Borgias'.

How does music get selected and recorded for a TV series about Henry VIII? Who makes final choices? Does historical accuracy ever rub up against “directorial vision”? What is the relationship between the historical music and the modern theme music?

David Fallis produced the historical music for the Showtime series The Tudors with Jonathan Rhys Meyers playing Henry VIII of England. In this discussion, he will share a “behind-the-scenes” look at the journey from script to on-screen in historical drama.

David Fallis is a fluent, witty and entertaining speaker with a distinguished career as one of Canada's leading early music conductors and singers.

The event will be compered by the Renaissance Singers' Director of Music, David Allinson.
