Sarah Walker with music by Faure, Granados and Bach.

This week Sarah Walker's Sunday Escape is music from the original version of Fauré's Requiem, reconstructed by Marc Rigaudière and sung by King's College Choir. She also explores music from southern Europe by Foulds, Granados and Monteverdi, and includes classics from Beethoven and JS Bach.There's also a very unusual take on music by Astor Piazzolla.
