Thursday - Sean Rafferty

As the Diamond Jubilee weekend approaches, In Tune looks forward to the celebrations with live performance from guests soprano Mhairi Lawson and lutenist Paula Chateauneuf, music for British monarchs from the courts of Elizabeth I, James VI and I, Charles I, Charles II, and William and Mary, and compositions by Dowland, Lawes and Purcell.
And, in lively contrast, the David Rees-Williams Trio entertain us live in the studio with their unique classical-jazz hybrid ahead of David's new solo album, Full English.
Plus conductor Ben Palmer visits the In Tune studio to discuss his upcoming world premiere concert performance of Elgar's King Arthur (complete incidental music) with the Orchestra of St Paul's at the English Music Festival.
