In his Sunday Morning selection this week, Rob Cowan sees how composers as varied as Glazunov, Ravel and Smetena have tackled the theme of summer. And as a curtain raiser to this week's J. S. Bach Cantata, music from the composer's son C. P. E. Bach. The cantata itself, Widerstehe doch der Sunde (Just resist sin) BWV 54, is a famous performance by countertenor Alfred Deller, to mark his centenary year.
