Just ahead of the release of the new British Original series “Shardlake,” a Tudor murder-mystery series based on the internationally popular novels by C.J. Sansom, Hollywood Records has released the soundtrack to the series on digital platforms, including Amazon, Apple, and Spotify.

Drenched in mystery, suspense and deception, this four-part drama, based on the first novel in Sansom’s series, is an eerie whodunnit adventure, set in 16th century England during the dissolution of the monasteries. Shardlake’s sheltered life as a lawyer is turned upside down when Cromwell instructs him to investigate the murder of one of his commissioners at a monastery in the remote town of Scarnsea. The commissioner was gathering evidence to close the monastery and it is now imperative for Cromwell’s own political survival that Shardlake both solves the murder and closes the monastery. He leaves Shardlake in no doubt that failure is not an option. Cromwell insists that he is accompanied by Jack Barak to Scarnsea, where the duo are met with hostility, suspicion and paranoia by the monks who fear for their future and will seemingly stop at nothing to preserve their order.

The soundtrack features an original score by Alex Heffes, who has previously worked on “The Last King of Scotland” and “Queen of Katwe”.
