It would be unfair not to take the time to evoke the wonderful music of Bear McCreary which is inseparable from the vibe of the Outlander series.
This is not the first time that Bear has composed for film and television, far from it! Since 2005, he has been composing the scores for numerous series, such as Battlestar Galactica, Eureka, Terminator: the Sarah Connor Chronicles, Caprica, Human Target: la Cible (the first season only - with the distinction of having used for the episode the largest orchestra assembled for a television series episode), The Cape, The Walking Dead, Defiance and, in parallel, those of several DVD direct-release films and two video games, Dark Void and SOCOM 4.
And of course, from 2014, he composed the original music for the Outlander series, with the talent and success that we know him. For the record, the song in the credits, Skye Boat Song, is performed by his wife Raya Yarbrough
