New entry. Alexandre Desplat's 2014 score makes it into the chart

The 2014 film about Alan Turing's efforts to crack the Enigma code, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, was one of the biggest films of 2014. So it's no surprise Alexandre Desplat's atmospheric score has made it into the chart.

Desplat was nominated for an Oscar for the score — the award eventually went to Desplat's score for The Grand Budapest Hotel.

The music is a rich orchestral score whose minimalist influences nod to the patterns, codes and mathematical problems at the heart of the film.

It was recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra.
