Sara Mohr-Pietsch explores the world of choral music. This week's Choral Interview features the musical choices of composer Sir Karl Jenkins - and around 4.30pm we meet the Southwell Choral Society, as part of The Choir's regular feature on amateur singing groups, Meet My Choir.

At 5pm Sara's Choral Classic is Schubert's partsong "Gebet" - a little jewel of small-scale choral singing, intended for friends to sing together in a domestic setting.
