The Choral Pilgrimage 2016: The Deer's Cry

05:29

The Sixteen - The Voices of Classic FM - are this week's highest new entry.

There's no change in the top five this week - but there's a superb new entry from The Sixteen at No.10. They've combined works by early music masters William Byrd and Thomas Tallis with contemporary choral pieces by the Estonian Arvo Pärt. It's a stunning combination and this week's highest new entry.

See The Sixteen perform The Deer's Cry live in their 2016 Choral Pilgrimage >

Another contemporary composer making a new chart entry is Henryk Gorecki who dominated the Classic FM Chart in our early days with his Symphony No.3. His Fourth Symphony is new into the chart at No.30.
