The Classic FM Chart - 15 February 2015, 5pm

Sublime choral music from VOCES8 soars into the Chart at No.2.

There's just no budging Andre Rieu who has been at No.1 for the entire year so far. But giving him a run for his money is the superb vocal ensemble VOCES8. Their latest offering Lux is the highest new entry at No.2. So watch out Andre!

There's more serene choral music making an impact elsewhere on the Chart - including the wonderfully simple music of the young Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds who has recently had a residency at Trinity College Cambridge. Hence their recording his music which enters the Chart at No.13.
