Alex James' Magical Musical Tour - 22 February 2014

The next destination for Alex James is heavens above!

Alex James’s Magical Musical Tour has taken us to all sorts of places over the past year – from cities including Paris and New York, to destinations like the fairy kingdom, the library, and even into Outer Space!  

This week, though, Alex surpasses himself – because his destination is about as far as you can go: heaven.  

We’ll hear from the composer and nun Hildegard of Bingen - who claimed she received heavenly visions from God - and will also enjoy ‘The Heavens Are Telling the Glory of God’ from Haydn's oratorio The Creation.  

Plus – music from the yet-to-be-released album Angels by contemporary composer Patrick Hawes, and much-loved sacred choral works by Allegri, Handel and Mozart.
