Next to the Bible itself, the English Bible was — and is — the most influential book ever published. The most famous of all English Bibles, the King James Version, was the culmination of centuries of work by various translators, from John Wycliffe, the fourteenth-century catalyst of English Bible translation, to the committee of scholars who collaborated on the King James translation.

Profile of entertainers Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins, who have become famed for their irreverent, raised-eyebrow humour and cheeky innuendo. Both hailing from south London, Mel and Sue met at Cambridge and like so many others, honed their self-effacing double act on the stages of Edinburgh before breaking into TV fronting the Channel 4's daytime chat show Light Lunch. While at one point Mel came close to bankruptcy, the duo's luck was in when, in 2010, they were asked to host an unlikely sounding new show called The Great British Bake Off. Its enormous - though unexpected - success established them as top-of-the-game presenting talent.

Classical, Choral | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 01:08:57 | 160 MB
Label: Divine Art

British-born composer Lydia Kakabadse has a multicultural heritage (Greek/Austrian mother and Russian/Georgian father). This heritage shines through in her choral music, ostensibly in the core Western church tradition but highly influenced by the modes of ancient Greece and middle-eastern music including Orthodox chant, both Greek and Russian. This collection of sacred choral works includes many standard liturgical texts some of which are set in the context of a dramatic mini-cantata, which Kakabadse calls a Concert Requiem Mass, based on a story she wrote. Other works are suitable for liturgical use. The works are performed by former members of the acclaimed Clare College Choir, all of whom have graduated and many are now professional singers.

The Rough Trade story begins more than thirty years ago on 20th February 1976. Britain was in the grip of an IRA bombing campaign; a future prime minister was beginning to make her mark on a middle England in which punk was yet to run amok; and a young Cambridge graduate called Geoff Travis opened a new shop at 202 Kensington Park Road, just off Ladbroke Grove in west London. The Rough Trade shop sold obscure and challenging records by bands like American art-rockers Pere Ubu, offering an alternative to the middle-of-the-road rock music that dominated the music business.
