The Classic FM Chart - Sunday 24 July 2016, 5pm

Game of Thrones ousts Aled once again from the top spot.

Poor Aled Jones. He couldn't stand firm at No.1 against the dark forces of Cersei Lannister, the most dangerous character in Game of Thrones and not someone who'd feel much sympathy if you sang Danny Boy at her. Ah well, there's always next week Aled. To be continued.

The highest new entry is at No.29 this week. Dowland's Lachrimae or Seven Tears , performed by Phantasm with Elizabeth Kenny, is an extraordinary collection of dance music for viols and lute, but full of sadness, grief, anger and melancholy (with a few moments of joy and gladness.) Phantasm's Laurence Dreyfus describes this album as 'the most sensuously tuneful hour of music ever written', and who can disagree?
