Aled Jones explores the choral world of French composer Lili Boulanger, who died tragically young at the age of only 24. After her death, her music was promoted tirelessly by her elder sister Nadia.

Plus there's a complete performance of Faure's Requiem, conducted by Thierry Fischer with the BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales.
