Hello everyone and welcome to another post on the long running BBC radio 4 show, Desert Island Discs. This episode of course had as its guest, Colin Dexter on 6th February 1998.
As before I have added the music that Colin chose after the video. This will give everyone a chance to listen to longer versions of Colin’s musical choices. Enjoy.
In Paradisum (from Requiem), Op 48
This piece has been used not only in the Morse series but also the Endeavour series. In particular it was used in the pilot episode of Endeavour as well as the episode Home. Famously it was used in the last ever Morse episode Remorseful Day.
