John Marshall – The Man Who Made The Supreme Court
Ok, I’ll admit it. Composing “classical-style” music may not be my strongest suit. But when given the chance to score a new two and a half hour film about John Marshall for Amazon Prime, I jumped at the chance! Marshall turns out to have been a fascinating character in US History, full of paradoxes and mysteries, and is a story that’s incredibly appropriate for today’s political climate.
The emotional ups and downs of this story gave me a chance to compose “classical” music (as well as other styles) in a number of different moods. In addition to the montage of the score, you can also some individual music cues, using the links below.
So take a listen when you get a chance, and let me know – was I able to pull the “semi-classical” style off?
Thanks – and enjoy!

Short Montage from the Score:
Almost 800 years ago, St. Francis of Assisi crossed into “enemy” lines to meet with the Islamic sultan Al-Kamil, starting a chain of events that ended the crusades. A film about this story – “The Sultan and The Saint” premieres on PBS later this year. I was incredibly honored to compose the music for this film, which – considering today’s political climate, should be seen by every person on this planet, regardless of their political persuasion. Just sayin’…
