The Classic FM Chart - 21 December 2014, 5pm

Five armies invade the chart this week - the new Hobbit score by Howard Shore is the highest new entry.

Christmas week on the Classic FM Chart and, no surprises, there's a lot of festive music in the countdown with popular stocking fillers from today's classical music stars. 

The highest new entry this week comes from Canadian composer Howard Shore who has made his last foray into Middle Earth with the soundtrack to the third instalment of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit. The Battle of the Five Armies makes its assault on the chart at No. 9.
