My 'Desert Island Discs' style interview with Christian composer Paul Mealor, which took place at Highfield Church Southampton on the evening of Sunday Ocober 29th 2017.

This recording includes two pieces of music (by Orlando Gibbons and John Rutter) sung by Southampton University Chamber Choir and volunteers from Highfield Church and the local community. Apologies for some distortion on these recordings, made with my mp3 recorder. The other musical extracts played from youtube clips during the evening have been edited out for copyright reasons.
