There are plenty of British favourites to enjoy tonight, including Eric Coates ’ stirring Dambusters March and even something from the pen of Sir Edward Elgar - his Wand of Youth suite.

Travelling a little further afield, David crosses the pond for Leroy Anderson ’s Trumpeter’s Lullaby and a number composed for Shall We Dance , starring Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire, composed by the great George Gershwin.
