On the classical chart, the top two spots were unchanged, with Cecilia Bartoli's Opera Proibita at number one and Ren_e Fleming's Sacred Songs at number two.

The only new entry of the week was Andr_ Rieu's New Year's in Vienna, at number 12. The violinist's previous album, The Flying Dutchman, is at number five, and his At the Movies has spent 78 weeks on the crossover chart.
