Q I've been enjoying the series Da Vinci's Inquest, a show based in Vancouver, Canada. I'd like to know more about the beautiful theme song.

The Canadian TV series, depicting the gritty exploits of a Vancouver-based crime-solving coroner, Dominic Da Vinci, has gained a following on its syndicated run in the United States. A made-for-TV movie is in the works and a DVD of the show's 1995 debut season was released in February. The theme music is by Vancouver composer Tim McCauley, who believes his role "is not to have the audience humming the tune," but rather "to have them touched by the story."
