Classic FM Chart: The Glorious Garden by presenter Alan Titchmarsh and Classic FM's Composer in Residence Debbie Wiseman enters at No. 1

11 March 2018, 18:55

The Glorious Garden by Classic FM's Composer in Residence Debbie Wiseman featuring poems by Classic FM Presenter Alan Titchmarsh has entered the chart at no. 1. Andre Rieu's Amore and Inspiration by Sheku Kanneh-Mason both climb one place each up to no. 2 and no. 3 respectively. Einaudi's Islands remains at no. 4 for the second week in a row, marking it's 350th appearance in the Classic FM Chart in style! The soundtrack from The Shape of Water also remains at no. 5 and is joined in the top ten by a new entry from Trinity College Cambridge with Bach's Mass in B minor at no. 6. Much of the rest of the top ten remains the same, with the addition of the soundtrack from Phantom Thread, which climbs up five places from no. 13 to no. 8. 

However, it is not all good news in the Classic FM Chart: last week's no. 1 - Five - is this week's biggest faller, having dropped seventeen places down to no. 18. It is joined by Andrea Bocelli's album Cinema at no. 19 plus a new entry from Howard Shelley at no. 20. There are three further re-entries this week, all soundtracks - Pride and Prejudice at no. 24, Dunkirk at no. 28 and Braveheart at no. 30. Meanwhile, Westminster Abbey Choir enter the chart at no. 25, while Yevgeny Sudbin playing Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 2 & 3 enters at no. 27, bringing this week's total of new entries to five.
