BBC RADIO 3 Sunday 22 November 2009

COMPOSERS OF THE YEAR 2009
Purcell At The Abbey

Sunday 22 November
6.30-8.30pm BBC RADIO 3
Soprano Carolyn Sampson
Soprano Carolyn Sampson

Marking the 350th anniversary of Purcell's birth, and forming the crowning moment of BBC Radio 3's celebrations, James O'Donnell directs the Choir of Westminster Abbey and St James's Baroque in a programme of some of Purcell's greatest choral music, with soloists including Carolyn Sampson (soprano) and Neal Davies (bass).

A master of song, theatre music, sacred and chamber music, Henry Purcell has stood as a point of cultural reference for succeeding generations of British composers and musicians, from Handel to Michael Tippett and Benjamin Britten. He died young, at the age of 36, and was deeply mourned by his contemporaries and the community around Westminster Abbey, where he lived, worked and is buried.

Both the Te Deum, Jubilate and Hail, Bright Cecilia! were composed in the 1690s for the annual celebrations of the feast of St Cecilia, the patron saint of music, which took place at St Bride's Church, Fleet Street and at Stationers' Hall, near St Paul's Cathedral. The Funeral Sentences were earlier works composed for an unknown occasion, perhaps the funeral of fellow composer Henry Cooke. A second setting of Thou knowest, Lord (also to be performed in this concert), was composed in 1694 for the funeral of Queen Mary II, which took place in Westminster Abbey itself. A year later it was heard again at Purcell's own funeral. His body now lies buried in the north aisle of the building.

Living World Ep 3/5

Sunday 22 November
6.35-7.00am BBC RADIO 4

This week's Living World looks at ivy and bugs.

Common ivy flowers in autumn are the most important late-season nectar source for more than 70 insect species. Butterflies, bees, hoverflies and gnats, and myriad beetles and bugs take up one of the richest sources of rocket fuel known in nature. Often overlooked, ivy is unique in Britain as the only member of a very large and important family of exotic tropical and sub-tropical flowering plants.

Lionel Kelleway travels to the north of Wales where he meets Ray Woods near Llandeilo to explore a long-abandoned church and scheduled ancient monument as they slowly succumb to the grip of ivy. Joining them will be the entomologist Phil Ward, to expand on insect decline in the UK.

This programme demonstrates the importance of the 40 ivy species in the country, including the moths that rely on thickets of ivy together with the bats that eat them.
