Sunday Music Slot: "Thanksgiving after the storm" from Beethoven's 6th Symphony

Following the devastation Storm Desmond has just inflicted on Cumbria, there could only be one choice of music for today's Sunday music slot

From Beethoven's Sixth (Pastoral) symphony, this piece was described by the composer as a "Shepherd's hymn of thanksgiving after the storm."

In this case the thanksgiving is for all the wonderful people from Cumbria's Fire and Rescue services, the other emergency services, and all the volunteers who have worked and are still working to help people and families affected by storms and flooding.
