Primary Composer Picture
Patrick Doyle at a reception in 1997

"I work very hard and I take it very seriously, and I'm a very committed composer and I get terribly involved in it and very passionate about it. I would hope that comes across."
- Patrick Doyle in 1994

Born in Scotland in 1953, Patrick Doyle graduated from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in 1975, where he studied piano and singing. His first music score was written in 1978, and subsequently, he has written the music for a host of radio, television, theatre and film productions since. He was made a Fellow of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music in 2001. After many years composing for theatre, radio, and television, Doyle joined the Renaissance Theatre Company as composer and musical director in 1987. In 1989 director Sir Kenneth Branagh commissioned him to compose the score for Henry V, conducted by Sir Simon Rattle, and they have subsequently collaborated on numerous pictures, including Much Ado About Nothing, Hamlet, Thor, and Disney's 2015 remake, Cinderella, which represented their eleventh collaboration. Despite transforming his career into one of blockbuster animation and action success in the 2010's, he remains perhaps best known in film music for his early contributions to the Shakespearean community.
