The freshwater pearl" voice of soprano Tessa Bonner, who died little more than a year ago, lent itself equally to baroque solo repertoire and Tudor polyphony.

Catherine Bott pays tribute to a much-missed colleague and looks at the vital role that so called "jobbing" singers make to the early music scene.

The programme includes contributions from singers Don Greig, Deborah Roberts and Cecilia Osmond and music by Purcell, Mozart, Palestrina, Bach, Monteverdi and Luzzaschi.
