His latest release, ‘Stay Away’, is a charity single to raise money for the New Orleans’ Ellis Marsalis Center, in memory of the revered jazz musician and founder of the Marsalis dynasty who died from Covid 19. Latin Rocks On is a new book of song lyrics translated into ancient Latin. It’s author Sarah Rowley tells us why it’s a great way to learn the language and which songs work particularly well. Ola Ince’s new production of Romeo and Juliet was due to open at the Globe last week, launching its summer season. Its stars Alfred Enoch (Harry Potter, How To Get Away With Murder) and Rebekah Murrell (Nine Night) perform a scene from the iconic play for Front Row live from their homes. The Citadel, AJ Cronin’s groundbreaking novel about medical life in the 1920s, pre-NHS, returns to Radio 4 next week. The drama’s producer Gary Brown discusses its resonance today, and the technical challenges they faced recording it under lockdown.
