Topping the charts: Only Men Aloud

I was thrilled to discover that Only Men Aloud - now universally referred to as the UK's favourite choir - had stormed to the top of the Classical Album chart with their second CD, Band of Brothers.

The boys, led by Musical Director Tim Rhys Evans, are working hard on the old publicity rounds. It's a close run thing to work out if they're doing more TV interviews than Katherine Jenkins at the moment!

This album boasts my particular favourite track - an arrangement of Total Eclipse of the Heart with the inimitable Bonnie Tyler. When they first performed it live in concert earlier this year, the audience at the Cardiff International Arena went wild and you can see on the video that the choir and Bonnie are having a ball working together.

It's proof that good songs have cross generational appeal as some of the guys in the choir weren't even born when the song was first released.
