Composer of classical, operatic and liturgical music, Dario Pagano, has released his cinematically ensnaring latest score ‘Roma Invicta (Battle)’, an evocatively tensile aural narrative of conflict, resilience and hope. It’s the perfect abstraction from your own emotion, something I’m sure many people presently need and will undoubtedly appreciate.
With a mix of antecedent sounds ranging from Gregorian chants to liturgical choral elements combined with the sheer intensity of the production, also deftly handled by Dario Pagano, the score instils a potent sense of hope as you’re served a sonorous reminder that the world is so much bigger and more sacrosanct than we view it to be on a daily basis.
Roma Invicta is available to stream via Spotify.
