Music while you work – Arthurian Christmas

A slight change of tack as we approach Christmas. I rarely listen to spoken word radio while I work in my garden office/shed (except for cricket – aaarggghhhh - and Radio Exterior de España) but if you have time on Thursday at 2.15pm, I’d recommend tuning in to BBC Radio 4 to listen to Sir Gawain And The Green Knight in a new translation by poet Simon Armitage, narrated by Sir Ian McKellen, original music by Gary Yershon. The play starts at Christmas which makes it a particularly festive listen. It should also be available via the BBC’s Listen Again service for seven days after broadcast.
