Olivier starred and directed Henry V which begins as a recreation of stage production at the Globe Theatre then gradually turns into a stylized cinematic rendition of the play with sets reminiscent of the medieval Book of Hours. The film was made near the end of World War II and was intended as a morale booster for Great Britain, consequently the film was partly sponsored by the British government. The film won Olivier a number of Academy Awards and it also won William Walton an award for Best Score. The score was praised by music critics both as film music and as a concert suite in its own right. When the film was released in 1944 many music critics published detailed reviews of the score and extracts of it were presented at the Prom concerts in 1945.

This recording was made with Sir Neville Marriner conducting the Academy of St Martins in the Field. It was fortunate for Chandos that Sir Neville happened to know Christopher Plummer and suggested he might be persuaded to perform as speaker. The recording was a happy occasion and indeed Chandos chairman Brian Couzens still has a photograph in his study taken from these sessions which shows Brian with Sir Neville and Christopher Plummer. On the recording’s original release the Sunday Telegraph wrote that ‘Chandos has performed a real service by recording [Walton’s] complete score for Olivier’s famous 1944 film of Henry V… the music represents one of the finest scores ever composed for the cinema and deserves to be preserved in this form’.
