Aled Jones is joined by choral director Ken Burton. Together they explore the different ways in which composers have responded to the theme of "freedom", including Francis Poulenc, whose horror at the occupation of Paris inspired him to create "Figure humaine", a heartfelt hymn to liberty, Beethoven, Vaughan Williams, plus some of Ken's personal favourites too.
