Sean Rafferty presents, with live music from the Choir of New College Oxford and the Novus String Quartet. Plus a joint interview with choral legends John Rutter and Bob Chilcott.

The Novus String Quartet also play live and look forward to their Wigmore Hall recital on Sunday, and choral legends John Rutter and Bob Chilcott talk to Sean about two joint concerts with the BBC Singers and Concert Orchestra.
