Classic Arts News   Fleming's Sacred Songs Jumps Back Up Billboard Chart; Bocelli Continues Crossover Reign
 
Ren_e Fleming's Sacred Songs enjoyed a sharp increase in sales this week, its 22nd week on the Billboard classical chart, jumping from number 10 to number three.

The bump may have been the result of appearances with orchestras in Buffalo, Dayton, and Columbus late last month.

Violetta, a collection of excerpts from Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villaz‹n's recording of La traviata, remained at number one for the second straight week. Andr_ Rieu's The Flying Dutchman moved from number four to number two, trading places with Villaz‹n's Opera Recital.

There were no new entries on the chart.

Andrea Bocelli continued to rule the classical-crossover chart: his Amore remained at number one, and a Spanish-language version of the album, titled Amor, debuted on the chart at number 24. The tenor's previous album, Andrea, remained at number five in its 68th week on the chart.
