Classics is a compilation album by classical crossover soprano Sarah Brightman. It collects previously released material, such as "Pie Jesu", from Andrew Lloyd Webber's Requiem; "Figlio Perduto", "Lascia ch'io pianga" and "La Luna" from Brightman's previous studio albums, and new recordings of some her classical vocal performances, including "Ave Maria", "Dans La Nuit", "Alhambra" and a solo version of the 1997' hit "Time to Say Goodbye".

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]
