As I indicated earlier, the entire holiday weekend was a big, fat waste of time because 'Classic FM' were playing their way through the 300 top pieces of classical music as voted for by their zillions of listeners. 'Big Henry' was rather grumpy because none of Ludwig's magnificos made it into the top three but if it's any consolation he had three in the top ten: No.9 and No. 6 were 8th and 7th respectively and the 5th piano concerto was, rather appropriately 5th . The No. 7 came in at 18th but to my own irritation the 5th symphony, the greatest piece of music ever written in my humble opinion, only made it to 31 on the chart.
Anyway, the top three were exactly the same as last year:
3: Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis: Ralf Vaughan Williams
2: Piano concerto #2 by Sergei Rachmaninov
1: Lark Ascending by Ralf Vaughan Williams
And yes, you are quite right, Henry, that most of the voters are English but according to Classic FM they receive huge numbers of votes from all over America, too. Personally, I think Edward Elgar's Cello Concerto deserves to be up there in the top three but he only made it to #11.
