The Classic FM Chart - Sunday 13 December 2015, 5pm

It's well and truly Christmas in the Classic FM Chart.

Downton Abbey Ultimate Collection

While Alexander Armstrong holds onto the No.1 spot for a third week, elsewhere in the Classic FM Chart Christmas has well and truly arrived. More than a third of the Chart is made up of compilations and collections of seasonal music.

The highest new entry is at No.25 - it's the Downton Abbey Ultimate Collection. Thirty-six tracks from all six series of the popular show are packed onto a double album. The music was composed by John Lunn, who also features as pianist on the collection.
