The Classic FM Chart - 25 May 2014

A terrifying force of nature enters the Classic FM Chart.

The monster movie to end all monster movies has arrived, and not only is Godzilla flattening everything in his path, he's stormed into the Classic FM Chart at number six. 

But with Classic FM Hall of Fame 2014 holding on to the top spot for a fourth week, it looks like the scaly one has a fierce battle on his hands.

There are no other new entries in this week's Chart but the 150th birthday of Richard Strauss is marked with a re-entry for Jessye Norman and her outstanding recording of Strauss' Four Last Songs.
