John is probably best known currently for scoring the hugely successful flagship ITV/Carnival Films drama, Downton Abbey. For which, he was awarded an EMMY AWARD 2012, and has also received an EMMY nomination 2013. Having won a best TV score RTS Award 2010, as well as having been nominated for both aBAFTA and Ivor Novello award for his evocative score for Sky's Going Postal, and having received nominations for a BAFTA Award for Best Original Score for his wonderful music to the BBC Dickens adaptation, Little Dorrit, John Lunn’s music possesses a wonderfully unique voice that spans the spectrum of musical styles. Classically trained yet contemporary in attitude, he combines a highly intelligent and sensitive approach, with a sound that always hits at the emotional heart of a piece. Along with the highest production values, and a continual desire to discover new colours and sounds, it is not hard to see why John is continuously in such high demand.
John is currently scoring the highly anticipated BBC drama, Burton And Taylor starring Dominic West and Helena Bonham-Carter as Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, having just completed the BBC’s The White Queen, based on the bestselling Phillipa Gregory novels, and the BBC’s reimagining of the Hitchcock classic,The Lady Vanishes. Other recent works, as well as having included scoring Mob Films adaptation of Terry Pratchett's Going Postal for Sky1, and the much acclaimed 2012 new year's BBC/Masterpiece Dickens centenary adaptation of The Mystery Of Edwin Drood, also include a compelling 14 part re-imagining of another Dickens' classic, Little Dorrit for the BBC, (for which John also received an EMMY nomination) and a wonderfully chilling one off Xmas special feature adaptation of MR James' classic ghost story, Turn of the Screw for the BBC, starring John Hurt.
