The Classic FM Chart - Sunday 27 September 2015, 5pm

A massive choral compilation knocks Jonas Kaufmann off the top of the Chart.

There's a new No.1 at the top of the Classic FM Chart. After just one week at the top, Jonas Kaufmann has been pushed into second place by The Choir - The Ultimate Collection, gathering together the most popular choral music ever written.

A former Classic FM Album of the Week, Songs from the Arc of Life from cellist Yo-Yo Ma and pianist Kathryn Stott is the second-highest new entry, and Samoan/Kiwi family vocal ensemble Sol3 Mio re-enter the chart with their new release and their original debut album.

And last week's Classic FM Album of the Week from left-hand pianist Nicholas McCarthy is another new entry, at No.12.
