Presented by Louise Fryer. Vaughan Williams: Fantasia on a theme of Thomas Tallis. Debussy: Fantaisie; Prelude a l'apres-midi d' un faune. Bingham: Shakespeare Requiem.

This week Afternoon on 3 features French music, centred around the BBC Philharmonic's Reflections on Debussy series celebrating the 150th anniversary of his birth. Kathryn Stott joins the orchestra for Debussy's luscious Fantaisie, before more opulent romanticism in Scriabin's Poem of Ecstasy. Plus, to mark Shakespeare's 448th birthday, Judith Bingham's Shakespeare Requiem - which combines the Latin Mass with speeches from Shakespearian monarchs.

Presented by Louise Fryer.
