The Classic FM Chart - 10 August 2014, 5pm

The Commonwealth Games, the Centenary of World War 1, and the 2014 Bristol Proms have all had a strong impact on this week's chart.

While Nicola Benedetti 's Scottish-flavoured album Homecoming holds on tightly to the No. 1 spot, there's strong competition hovering close by with a new entry at No. 2 from rising South African opera star Pumeza, who sang at both the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony and the Bristol Proms.

And the brilliant young pianist Ji Liu, hot from his sensational Bristol Proms debut, re-enters the Chart at No. 5.
