The Classic FM Chart - 19 January 2014

There's a distinctly British connection between the Chart's two new entries this week.

There are two interesting new releases in the Chart this week, both with strong links to the British Isles.

Ernest John Moeran was an English composer who had strong ties with Ireland. A new album of his orchestral works enters the chart at No. 10. It shows off his gift for incorporating folk tunes that are actually his own.

And Overtures from the British Isles is our second new entry at No. 23. It includes works by Sir Arthur Sullivan and Sir Charles Villiers Stanford.
