In today’s programme, we’ll be taking a musical journey through ancient lands, from Greece and Rome, to the Americas, the South Pacific, Antartica – and even the Moon.
Guided by the ancient Piri Reis Map (above), thanks to the E S Posthumus album Cartographer, we’ll touch the shores of Antartica with Vaughan Williams, ancient South America with Cusco, the South Pacific with Jalan Jalan, the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World with Stuart Mitchell, and the land of the Cathars with Christian Sales. We’ll even visit the Moon with both Laurie Johnson and Mannheim Steamroller, and discover ancient peoples with Hans Zimmer. We’ll visit magical islands and strange uncharted seas. And, of course, a great deal more. The music is largely, but not exclusively, instrumental, with conventional and electronic instrumentation. We do hope you enjoy the journey.
