The Classic FM Chart - Sunday 6 September 2015

The Ultimate Classic FM Hall of Fame box set shoots to No.1, with half the Top 30 is made up of new or re-entries.

There are no fewer than 15 new or re-entries in this week's Classic FM Chart but the big news is that Classic FM's latest release, The Ultimate Classic FM Hall of Fame has shot straight into the countdown at No.1.

Among the new entries there's a No.3 entry for Joyce DiDonato and Antonio Pappano with their superb Wigmore Hall concert. And all three of John Williams's original Star Wars film scores return to the Chart, in deluxe remastered editions.
