Steven Devine director, harpsichord

Helen Charlston alto

Nick Pritchard tenor

Dingle Yandell baritone

with Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell DBE FRS FRSE FRAS

The music: With Easter approaching, we play Bach's Palm Sunday cantata, telling the hopeful story of Jesus' entrance into Jerusalem.

The science: As a postgraduate student, pioneering astronomer Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell discovered the rotating neutrons starts known as pulsars, considered one of the greatest astronomic discoveries of the 20th century, which ultimately won a Nobel Prize. To round off our season, she explains how we're all made of star stuff.
