The score of the film was composed by Michael Nyman. It was primarily based upon his "String Quartet No.3", with which Hampton created a temp track, and wanted as a leitmotif for Lytton Strachey. However, there is also newly-composed material for the film, including "Virgin on the roof," which was incorporated into the "String Quartet No. 4", and the theme for Mark Gertler, which is derived from "3 Quartets", which was composed at roughly the same time.
