“Steve Lynch, composer and producer from Stellar Sound, joined forces with the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra to record the soundtrack to Cromwell in Ireland. Lynch travelled to Slovakia to record the documentary score at Bratislava Radio Studios. The score for Cromwell in Ireland is haunting, an attempt to draw as much emotion as possible out of the subject matter, to emphasise the sorrow as well as the darkness of Cromwell. The title theme was composed using the letters of his name and their alphabetic position to generate the musical phrase, literally spelling out ‘Cromwell’ through music”. - www.rte.ie
