New Choirs Revisited

Presented by Aled Jones.

The programme's resident talent scout, choral director Peter Broadbent, returns with his pick of the most promising choral talent from a recent 'choir marketplace' event held in the French town of Saint-Lo.

Aled explores the choral legacy of American innovator and choral maverick Charles Ives, to coincide with the publication of a new volume of the composer's correspondence.
