In the overture to his opera William Tell, Rossini painted a picture of a Summer storm and the galloping horses of the Swiss army! We'll hear it on Sunday and we'll visit a farm.

We'll travel around the world with postcards from The King's Singers and to celebrate Mother's Day, we'll hear the story of The Runaway Bunny, about a little bunny rabbit who decides to run away. But his wise Mum tells him, 'If you run away, I will run after you.' With music by Glen Roven, the story is read by Brooke Shields. And with the Feis Ceoil starting this week in Dublin, we'll hear performances by some of the many great winners over the years, including John O'Conor, Cara O'Sullivan and Finghin Collins.
