Meet ‘Good Omens’ Chattering Order of St. Beryl… In Their Music Video…
As the anticipation builds for the premiere of ‘Good Omens‘, which launches on Amazon Prime from Friday, 31st May 2019, the streaming service has released a music video… of singing nuns. Because what could be more Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman than that!
Good Omens’ follows an unlikely duo, a fussy Angel (Michael Sheen, ‘Masters of Sex’) and a loose-living Demon (David Tennant, ‘Doctor Who’) who’ve become overly fond of life on Earth are forced to form an unlikely alliance to stop Armageddon. But they have lost the Antichrist, an 11-year-old boy unaware he’s meant to bring upon the end of days, forcing them to embark on an adventure to find him and save the world before it’s too late.
This unholy a cappella tribute was written to remember and celebrate the moment when The Chattering Order of St Beryl realised their true purpose, to switch the newborn baby Antichrist with the baby of an American Ambassador. Pulled from the pages of Sir Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s novel-turned-series ‘Good Omens’, The Chattering Order of St. Beryl are an order of nuns dedicated to emulating Christian martyr St. Beryl of Krakow, and whose members are commanded to chatter, natter, and rabbit about every last little thing that comes into their heads for every second of every waking hour.
joining Tennant and Sheen in the all-star cast are Jon Hamm as the Archangel Gabriel, Miranda Richardson as Madame Tracy, with Michael McKean as Shadwell, Jack Whitehall as Newt, Adria Arjona as Anathema Device, Anna Maxwell Martin as Beelzebub, Mark Gatiss & Steve Pemberton as Harmony & Glozier, Derek Jacobi as the Metatron, and David Morrissey as pleasure cruiser Morbilli Captain Vincent. On top of those stars, Benedict Cumberbatch will voice Satan, Frances McDormand (‘Three Billboards’, ‘Fargo’) will play his opposite, the voice of God, and Brian Cox (the actor one, not the physicist one) will voice Death.
The series is written by Neil Gaiman (‘American Gods’), who also serves as showrunner, and directed by Douglas Mackinnon (‘Sherlock’, ‘Line Of Duty’, ‘Doctor Who’). It is based on the well-loved and internationally bestselling novel ‘Good Omens’ by Terry Pratchett (‘Hogfather’) and Gaiman.
‘Good Omens‘ premieres worldwide on Friday, 31st May 2019 on Amazon Prime.
