In an exclusive programme for Classic FM, the new Archbishop of Canterbury,
Justin Welby, will present a selection of classical favourites and music
inspired by the Easter story, between 7:00 and 9:00 hrs on Easter Sunday 31st March.
Tune in for highlights including the Easter Hymn from Mascagni’s opera Cavalleria Rusticana, reflective music by the contemporary composer Patrick Hawes, and selections from Handel’s oratorio Messiah.
The Archbishop will be reflecting on how his previous roles in the clergy have led to him celebrating Easter in all sorts of places around the world, and he’ll also be talking about how he plans to spend his first Easter as Archbishop of Canterbury.
