A 77-piece orchestra was conduced by Nick Glennie-Smith at Fox, where the "gentle, lush and sensitive" score was recorded by Chris Fogel in the control room. Orchestrated by Kevin Kleish, Shearmur’s score was also recorded with a smaller ensemble later in the scoring process, with a 59-piece "C" orchestra.
