The Classic FM Chart - 27 July 2014

Nicola Benedetti remains at No. 1 - but Sacha Puttnam has a high new entry.

Nicola Benedetti holds onto the top spot for the second week running with her quintessentially Scottish album, Homecoming. Will the Commonwealth Games factor ensure that she stays put at No. 1 for another week?

The highest new entry, at No. 7, comes from Sacha Puttnam, composer-pianist son of film producer David Puttnam. He's put together a superb collection of film music from his father's movies, Puttnam plays Puttnam - it's a former Classic FM Album of the Week.
