In the spirit of Radio 3’s popular In Tune Mixtape - joining together an eclectic range of classical and contemporary sounds - we present a live, late-night wind-down, exploring the fringes of Minimalism and meditative listening.

With radiant choral sounds and heavenly strings plus guest soloists, the Royal Albert Hall transforms into a vast ambient resonator.

Pieces by the godfathers of ‘Holy Minimalism', Arvo Part and Peteris Vasks, emerge out of the sublime classicism of JS Bach and Schubert, in a Prom to calm the mind and nourish the soul.
