Classical Meanderings – Stepping Out on Phoenix FM 1st October 2017

I covered Nigel Fitzmourice’s Stepping Out show this Sunday evening and took the opportunity to play a lot of the classical music I’ve been enjoying recently. Especially as it is a Sunday and I spoke about what a special day of the week it is for me. The day when we can hopefully relax and be away from the daily grind and also how it is traditionally a sacred day, one of worship.

I played a lot of what I considered to be ‘heavyweights’ of the classical genre, especially of the polyphonic choral music I enjoy so much, some of which was taken from the Cathedral Voices album. Also were examples by the Tallis Scholars and Robert Hollingworth’s I Fagiolini.

You can listen to the show again here:

About Graham Stannard

I've worked in radio off and on since 1993, from the early days of Restricted Service Licence broadcasts in Southend with Searock and Supanova, through Southend Hospital Radio to Phoenix FM which I joined in January 2010. My show Musical Meanderings covers a broad range of music such as metal, acoustic and electronic. The show particularly showcases unsigned bands, both locally and internationally, and features interviews and live music in the studio, out on location or via Skype. I also present the Mental Health Matters podcast on the station. Interviewing local and international practitioners, using and researching various techniques to help people with a variety of mental health conditions, and also looking into some broader issues which may be behind the increase in mental health problems.
