Usually Radio 3 presents live choral evensong services from different parts of the country each week, but this Wednesday’s programme is a little different. It presents a rare chance to hear an archived evensong from 1981.

Philip Ledger directs the service at King’s College Chapel, Cambridge where he was the musical director from 1974 to 1982.

As well as his tenure at King’s College, Ledger, who died last year, is also remembered as an organist and composer.
