Take 30 minutes out with a relaxing classical mix

Relaxing and inspiring sounds from renaissance England, classical Vienna and 21st-century Norway.

There are many ways to relax - and this mix includes expansive but meditative music from Tomas Luis de Victoria and Norwegian singer Mari Boine; intimate pieces from John Dowland and Sergey Rachmaninov; a soothing slow movement from Haydn; and dance-inspired music from string band Frigg and Michael Haydn. Philip Glass manages to combine everything in his Dance 8.
Producer: Roger Short
