Recording information: Trevor Morris Music.
Series creator Neil Jordan and Showtime were wise to snag Tudors' composer Trevor Morris for their historical fiction series The Borgias. Like The Tudors, The Borgias was set amidst a backdrop of political, religious, and sexual intrigue in the 15th century. Morris once again displays a deft hand at blending period music with the orchestral, electronic flourishes of the 21st century. Comprised of mostly incidental music (of the 38 tracks, only four break the three-minute mark), the soundtrack for The Borgias' first season makes for a surprisingly cohesive listen, due in part to the composer's smooth transitions and gift for melodic melodrama. A spoiler alert for potential Borgias viewers, don't read the track listings, unless you want to know if "Cesare and Ursula Make Love," "Juan and Sancia Have Sex," or "Rovere Finds a Body in His Bed." ~ James Christopher Monger
