The Classic FM Chart - Sunday 21 February 2016, 5pm

Alexander Armstrong stays at No.1 but the choristers are coming...

This week's highest new entry comes in at No.6 and it's the debut from choral ensemble ORA, directed by Suzi Digby. Upheld by Stillness is focused around the music of William Byrd, juxtaposed alongside works by some of the UK's foremost choral composers, reflecting upon Byrd's Mass for Five Voices and Ave Verum Corpus.

There's another new choral entry at No.18. The Choral Scholars of University College Dublin have released an enchanting collection of traditional and contemporary choral music from Ireland and Scotland which features arrangements and new compositions by some of Ireland's most celebrated composers for choir.
