    Welcome to the latest episode of Harmonious World, in which I chat with soprano Nanette McGuinness from Ensemble for These Times.

    I've been listening the E4TT album The Guernica Project and we discuss the individual movements of Guernica, as well as the other fascinating tracks.

    Thanks to Nanette and E4TT for allowing me to play extracts from The Guernica Project alongside our conversation.
