Words and Music BBC Radio 3 Sundays 22.15 to midnight: a sequence of classical music, interspersed with well-loved and less familiar poems and prose read by leading actors. Each week the selection of readings and music is chosen broadly to illustrate or complement a theme. Full details of all the pieces in the programme are published on the website ahead of broadcast. Also on the website, alongside each programme, will be a note from the sequence’s producer giving an insight into their choice of words and music.
