Before the Revolution,
Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, was a town of many faiths and languages -church, mosque and synagogue were all near one another, and the city's music was influenced by Russian romances as well as by the Arabic-Persian songs of the ashougs.
Some of this lively mixture still survives in present-day Georgia.
Lela Sisauri presents folk music from Tbilisi, sung and played by the ensemble Soinari and the Rustavi Choir.

As a prelude to Radio 3's year of British Music and Culture, an evocation of Purcell's London, recently torn by civil war and soon to be hit by plague and fire.
When Purcell died in 1695, England was at war with France and ruled by a Dutchman whom many considered a usurper.
Yet this era saw the dawn of a vibrant popular culture. Whether cavorting on the frozen Thames, ordering replicas of the Queen's regal drapes or running "with arses bare" through the streets of London, the high-spirited men and women of Purcell's
England found many ways of keeping melancholy at bay. Producer Daniel Snowman
Alwynne Pritchard and Sarah Walker listen back to the year's studio sessions and CD releases and, with the help of listeners' requests, make a selection of late-night highlights. Producer Alan Hall
