Music from Henry the fifth Beatle

In Tune's specially curated mixtape including music by Henry VIII, George Martin, Elgar, Ligeti and Roxanna Panufnik's choral piece All Shall Be Well.

In Tune's specially curated mixtape with music by Henry VIII - his arrangement of the Flemish tune Taunder naken all the way through to an adagio for harmonica and strings by George Martin - famed producer of the Beatles. There's also a joyous piano sonatina by Ligeti, a Bavarian dance from Elgar, a fantasia from Gibbons and Roxanna Panufnik's All Shall Be Well which combines the plainchant hymn of a group of Polish knight's going into battle and the words of the English mystic Julian of Norwich. The mix ends with a wedding processional by Glazunov.

Producer: Ian Wallington
