vikingsTrevor Morris is the composer of the History Channel’s upcoming drama Vikings. The show is created by Michael Hirst (Elizabeth) and stars Gabriel Byrne, George Blagde, Travis Fimmel, Jessalyn Gilsig, Gustaf Skarsgard, Clive Standen and Katheryn Winnick. The series centers on Ragnar Lothbrok, a historical figure, and the greatest hero of his age – and the sagas of Ragnar’s.

Hirst is also executive producing the World 2000 and Take 5 production with Morgan O’Sullivan of World 2000 (The Count of Monte Cristo), John Weber, Sherry Marsh, Alan Gasmer, James Flynn and Sheila Hockin. Morris has previously scored Hirst’s critically acclaimed Showtime series The Tudors for Take 5 Productions and is also scoring the production company’s The Borgias. Vikings is set to premiere on March 3, 2013 on the History Channel. To learn more about the project, visit the History Channel’s official website.

    Thanks for the info! I didn’t know that Morris scored The Tudors. I have been a fan of Hirst for a long time, and there are a few Hirst fans that I work with at DISH. I had them over Sunday night to catch the first episode, and it was awesome. I didn’t make the connection until now, but I recognize Morris’ stile. It makes me miss the Tudors. I use to have that series stored on my old DVR, but I had to delete every episode to make room for my wife’s shows. Now we have a DISH Hopper DVR, that stores up to 2000 hours of entertainment! I can store the whole Vikings series, and watch it at my leisure, while my wife still has plenty of room for all of her shows.

    For the opening score, I would recommend anything by “The Knifes” or “Fever Ray”. Different constellations of a Swedish sibling duo who’s music I would say the Vikings score has copied.

    Just wondering if anyone knows the song that’s playing in Episode 9 of Vikings – when Floki sits down and tells that guy that there was no ‘or’ – and then eats and says ‘yes… war’ – that ambient song with some minimal piano – I’ve been dying to find out what it’s called – or if I can find it anywhere…

    Episode 9 The last song! Just like above poster I have been scouring the internet for this song… which let me here…. need the name of this as well 🙂 Sounds like Jocelyn Pook, but I know Trevor Morris is doing the composing. Any Suggestions? The IMDB page is useless.
