Celebrating British Music.
Journalist Simon Heffer presents the first of four programmes of his personal choices of music from the British Isles - some familiar, some not so well known. This programme includes works by Gustav Holst, Herbert Howells, Malcolm Arnold, Dame Ethel Smyth, John Foulds, Donald Tovey, Thea Musgrave, and the remarkable Viola Concerto by Stanley Bate.
