Lucie Skeaping is joined by James O'Donnell, Susan Rankin and Richard Mortimer at Westminster Abbey to discuss the legacy of Saint Edward the Confessor, England's only Royal Saint, who was born 1,000 years ago. There will be performances, given by Ensemble Gilles Binchois, of Church music with connections to this Holy King. Andrew Gourlay also chats to James about some of the more recent musical traditions at the Abbey.
