  • One of my favourite podcasts!

    I had to leave a review after listening to the latest episode on Defying Gravity from Wicked. It has gone straight into the top 3 of my episodes from the entire podcast! My other two are the Skye Boat Song from 2012 and Pergolesi Stabat Mater from 2013. The podcast has introduced me to such a wide range of music and I really am gripped by the meaning of the pieces to people and how the prices came about. Such a lovely series. Bravo! 🎶🎶
