From Red Dwarf to the Requiem Eternal Light, Howard Goodall has composed works across many idioms. He is perhaps best known for his TV and Film repertoire which includes theme tunes for Black Adder, The Vicar of Dibley, QI and the Mr Bean Movies. However, he has also composed many musicals which have been performed across the world and there is also a broad repertoire of choral music which is regularly sung in schools, churches and concert halls. Highlights over recent years have included his musical version of the classic film Love Story; music for his group Enchanted Voices; a work to mark the 400th Anniversary of the King James Bible and a piece to be performed on one of the musical boats which took part in the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Flotilla in June 2012.
His music has won many awards including a Classical Brit Award and Gramophone Award for Eternal Light in 2009, the same year he won a Primetime Emmy Award for the music he composed for HBO’s Into the Storm.
