Classics is a compilation album by classical crossover soprano Sarah Brightman. It consists of previously released material, such as "Time to Say Goodbye" and "Pie Jesu", and new material, such as "Ave Maria" and "Recuerdos de la Alhambra". Entertainment Weekly, although calling Brightman a "stronger song stylist than a singer", gave the album a grade of B-.[1] Classics was re-released in Europe as Classics: The Best of Sarah Brightman in 2006 and features the same cover art, but a different track listing.[2]
