The Universal Harmonies

David Huckvale investigates humanity's fascination with the heavens above.

He explores philosophical and scientific debates about the music of the spheres and looks at the appeal that the firmament seems to hold for composers - including John Tavener and Gustav Holst, whose `Song of the Cosmos' and `The Planets' are both performed during next Saturday's Prom.
