Radio 3 asks for your ‘Top of the Baroque’ for Red Nose Day

Vote for one of five pieces of music, each championed by a Radio 3 presenter

Baroque Spring

It’s Red Nose Day and five Radio 3 presenters are competing for your votes for their top pieces of Baroque music.


Suzy Klein, Jez Nelson, Tom Service, Sarah Walker and Sara Mohr-Pietsch have all chosen a piece of music from the Baroque era – and now they want your votes so the piece they’ve chosen will be crowned ‘Top of the Baroque’ later today.

From Pachelbel’s Canon for kazoo to scat singing with Couperin, each presenter has posted videos persuading you to part with your votes (and pennies) for their favourite work. You can see all the videos on the Radio 3 website.

There’s information for how to vote for each presenter below their video. For each text message Comic Relief will get £5 to help transform the lives of poor and vulnerable people, all over the UK and across Africa. Texts cost £5 plus your standard network message charge and the whole £5 goes to Comic Relief.

You must be 16 or over and please ask the bill payers permission
