R.I.P. Barrington Pheloung

Barrington Pheloung, one of the most innovative and interesting music composers on TV, has died.

Famous for his theme to the Morse TV series, he also contributed the incidental music for the series, including in his work complex clues to the drama being shown.

“The classical-inspired melancholy score earned the musician global acclaim and a Bafta Award nomination for best original music. Pheloung said the success was down to the show’s unconventional two-hour time slot, which allowed him to write more intricate musical cues.”

He also composed the main themes for both the sequel (Lewis) and prequel (Endeavour) series.
