A Troubadours fanfare was used in Oscar winning film "Finding Neverland" which stars Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet. The film won the Oscar for "Best Music Score" so in a small way The Troubadours contributed to that win!

Also, The Troubadours were also featured in Sky TV's "Brianiac - History Abuse". The prog was first shown in June 2005 and featured the band playing together and also busking outside the Clapham Grand in London. It is expected that the programme will be repeated regularly.

We provided provided help with the soundtrack for the motion picture The Gospel Of John ( Spectator magazine recently ran an article explaining our involvement - "Seeking to reflect the Roman influence on the period that the film depicts, Stephen Cera and Jeff Danna (Music Supervisor and Composer for the film) discovered Praecones Britanniae, a Cambridgeshire, U.K., group specializing in the music of Roman times. The pair duly incorporated the group into the soundtrack.".

The music from our Roman Music CD "Somnia Imperii" is regularly licensed for use in historic Roman locations and for TV programmes.

The authentic sounds for early historical period productions are very difficult to obtain.
