Alex James' Magical Musical Tour - 22 February 2014

The next destination for Alex James is heavens above!

heaven clouds sky

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 .
