Recorded earlier this evening at St Giles' Church in London's Barbican, Peter Maxwell Davies talks to Piers Burton-Page about his affinity for choral music and introduces three contrasted pieces - an Orkney sea-scape, a dreamy setting of words by Michelangelo and pages from a 16th-century commonplace book which includes poems, puzzles and recipes. BBC Singers Nicholas Kok (conductor) Maxwell Davies: Corpus Christi with cat and mouse Maxwell Davies: Angelus (world premiere) Maxwell Davies: Westerlings.
