Format: Audio CD
I have quite a few of these Classic FM albums and find them to be ideal for when I'm driving in the car are doing things around the house. They are also great CDs to put on the bedroom CD player when you're trying to get to sleep. I suppose you could ask what is the point of buying them when you could just put the radio on, but they're still nice to have and usually add some tracks to my collection which I really want to own. They also make a perfect gift of course.

This CD is definitely at the pop end of the market and features some familiar material from both radio and television (even Downton Abbey gets an airing here!.

Its nice to hear Mylene Klass playing the piano and she makes a good job of Sarabande although its a bit of a jazzed-up version. Hayley Westernra's Benedictus (from The Armed Man by Karl Jenkins) is a more traditional piece of work and the clarity of Hayley's voice shines through this recording.

I could do without André Rieu's rather kitsch treatment of Strauss's Als Flotter Geist, but its well-enough performed. Military Wives' Wherever you Are will be a popular choice of course (deservedly so after their television success) as will Alfie Boe's Bring Him Home.

I love the guitar and orchestra version of Astor Piazolla's Libertango - a classic tango piece which is a delight to listen to. Kark Jenkins Palladio is in a similar genre - very South American sounding but this time closer to home and well played by the Britain's Got Talent electric string quartet Escala.

I could have done without another recording of Nessun Dorma but Pavarotti's version never fails to impress.

Katherine Jenkins is well-represented of course with The Flower Duet, Abide with Me and Time to Say Goodbye.

Happy New Year to anyone reading this. I bought the album as a Christmas present for my wife, but I will be honest and say it was as much for me. The album is probably this best yet of the annual classical series. The choice of music very well considered with a excellent balance between traditional classic both vocal and orchestral, with the counterpoint of modern classical treatments from Alfie Boe, Aled Jones etc, plus the easy listening of film & television theme adaptations, to the brilliance of Luciano Pavaroti "Nessun Dorma". This one I would happily reccomend.

A gift for my parents, which was well received, apart from the fact my Father wanted to have it in the car for when he drives and my Mother wanted it in the conservatory to relax to. Crisis averted, I have ordered another CD. Worth buying twice.

Bought this for relative who loves it, but with the choice of performers on it, it would be difficult not to like it, wish I had bought it for myself too.

I have always looked forward to this annual album. There are always great performers and their songs, I particularly enjoy Russell Watson, Alfie Bowe, and of course Katherine Jenkins.
