Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Catherine Bott
The Angry Planet, Bob Chilcott's new environmental cantata for unaccompanied choirs, sets specially-written words by Charles Bennett exploring humanity's complex and often destructive relationship with the natural world, and the music brings together singers young and old, children and adults, professionals and amateurs - over 600 voices raised in song together with a signing choir for hearing impaired children. Ben Parry's Flame then takes the image of the Olympic torch as a beacon of light, life and understanding in the world.
