Hayley Cropper's death tune tops classical music poll

The Lark Ascending has been named as the nation's favourite piece of classical music.  It was the tune  played during the final scenes of Hayley Cropper on Coronation Street and you can listen to it below.


Ralph Vaughan Williams's The Lark Ascending has risen to the top of the annual Classic FM Hall Of Fame list, compiled from more than 100,000 votes from the station's listeners.

The Lark Ascending last topped the poll in 2010 and three years ago it was named the nation's favourite Desert Island Discs tune.

British composer Vaughan Williams was inspired by a poem of the same name by George Meredith and his first version for violin and piano was written in 1914. Some six years later he completed the more familiar orchestral version.
