The soundtrack to BBC/PBS television series “Wolf Hall” brings King Henry VIII’s court to life with dances and songs - some of which were composed by the monarch himself. Filmed in England’s great historic houses, the series features specialist early musicians playing live on set. All the Tudor Music for the production has been carefully sourced and arranged by Claire van Kampen, and recorded with the Musicians of Shakespeare’s Globe at London’s Abbey Road Studios. Ms. Van Kempen was formerly Director of Theatre Music at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre from its opening in 1997 until 2005. In 1986 she joined the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre, the first female musical director with either company. In 1990, she co-founded the theatre company Phoebus Cart, with her husband Mark Rylance.
