God in America PBS

My soundtrack for the forthcoming PBS Frontline series God In America is now available. Click here! Please drop me a line if you’d like more details. Here’s a track from the show…

Details from the press release for more info:

From the debate over the building of an Islamic center near Ground Zero to the threat by a Florida church to burn copies of the Quran, religion continues to animate American political discourse just as it has since the country’s founding.

Now, for the first time on television, God in America explores the tumultuous 400-year history of the intersection of religion and public life in America.

A distinguished list of actors has been enlisted to portray the historical figures. Two-time Emmy winner Michael Emerson of Lost, delivers a powerful performance as Puritan leader John Winthrop; Oscar-nominated Chris Sarandon (The Princess Bride, Dog Day Afternoon) gives a poignant portrayal of Abraham Lincoln’s spiritual journey during the Civil War ; Olivier Award winner and Tony nominee Toby Jones (Frost/Nixon, Harry Potter , W) as George Whitefield, America’s first, national evangelical preacher; Keith David (Crash, Platoon) as abolitionist Frederick Douglass; and Tony Award winner Jefferson Mays (I Am My Own Wife) as the incarcerated Baptist minister Jeremiah Moore.

Soundtrack by Philip Sheppard.

A co-production of American Experience and Frontline, the six-hour series airs October 11-13 at 9 p.m. ET on PBS
