The Classic FM Chart - Sunday 5 July 2015, 5pm

Guitarist Craig Ogden overthrows Andre Rieu to take the No.1 spot

There's been a coup of world-shaking proportions at the top of the chart. Classic FM's favourite guitarist Craig Ogden has unseated André Rieu's Magic of the Violin. Craig is joined by a host of musical friends to produce a stunning summer album.

Elsewhere in the Chart, the untimely passing of movie music maestro James Horner has brought both of his best-selling soundtracks - for Titanic and Braveheart - back into the Chart.
