Spanish Paths to Scottish Weavers

Walton's First Symphony, Schubert's The Shepherd on the Rock and MacMillan's The Gallant Weaver are just some of the delights that feature in this unpresented sequence of music.

This mixtape takes us on a choral pilgrimage to León in Spain, courtesy of Joby Talbot. There's also music by Walton, Schubert and MacMillan, and if you love the cello suites of Bach and are looking for a complementary set of pieces, try the opening piece, from Telemann's 12 Fantasias for viola da gamba.
