Music is said to be a great healer, but could it ever soothe the wounds of losing a son at the very start of his adult life? Aled Jones meets the mother who commissioned a newly recorded oratorio in celebration of her son's life from composer Jonathan Dove. Plus, there's music from 'vokal.total' in Austria, one of a new breed of vocal competitions celebrating the most adventurous of groups currently on the scene.
