Bach's monumental setting of the Mass is performed at the Royal Albert Hall , London, with the transparent textures of period instruments and reduced vocal forces. Innovative, traditional and timeless, its colourful scoring and dance-like rhythms complement its old-style fugues and majestic choruses and reassert its claim to be one of the greatest musical masterpieces.

Rudely Truncated. In the second of three documentaries charting the history of the Third Programme and Radio 3, Humphrey Carpenter investigates how the Third captured the intellectual high-ground with talks by the likes of Isaiah Berlin and Bertrand Russell. The Hilda Tablet plays of Henry Reed offered a lighter touch, and the Third broadcast one of the most famous programmes ever - Under Milk Wood. In 1957, cuts to the Third provoked a high-profile protest campaign. Meanwhile. the arrival of William Glock brought more contemporary European music to the network, leading to rumours that some British composers were officially excluded. Repeat
