This Week's Top 30 - 18 November 2012

Two big names battled it out for Number 1 – Andre Rieu with his album Magic of the Movies and Andrea Bocelli with Opera. And it was the Dutch violinist who came out on top, going straight to pole position, which knocked Friar Alessandro back to third place. Margherita Taylor also featured the world exclusive first play of Howard Shore’s new soundtrack to The Hobbit.
