The British radio station Classic FM is currently accepting votes for listeners' favorite classical music of all time. Go over and vote and be sure and propel the British composers to the top of the list! There is a contest for people who vote, but sadly, it is only open to UK residents. The voting, however, is open to all! Be sure and cast your votes by this Sunday, Jan. 31:

Voting in the Classic FM Hall of Fame 2010 has now opened!

Classic FM wants to know your all time classical music Top 3, so it’s down to you to vote for your favorite British composers to make sure they win! Hall of Fame is Classic FM’s biggest chart compilation that has been a huge success since launching in 1996.

Will it go to one of England’s finest, Edward Elgar? Or will Vaughan Williams’ stunning Lark Ascending maintain its three year lead at the top? The battle has commenced, so nominate your British favorite to decide who is going to win!

Visit www.classicfmhalloffame.co.uk to vote for your favorites. Type the details of the piece or composer you'd like to vote for in the box and search from the list of thousands of pieces chosen in previous years by other listeners. If your favorite isn't listed, you can also follow the instructions to type it in manually. The list of suggestions is simply there to help you vote as easily as possible - but it's by no means restrictive.

Online voting closes at 23:59 on Sunday 31 January 2010. The brand new Top 300 will be revealed on Classic FM across the Easter weekend from 2-5 April 2010.
