Who hasn’t thought what music they would chose if cast away on a remote island by BBC Radio 4? If you haven’t, now’s the time and there’s lots of inspiration to be had from the pre-thinking of other mere mortals like us.

In early June, Lauren Laverne shared contributions from Desert Island Discs listeners in a special 50-minute programme. Most selections reflect the particular demands of living and working under lockdown, but members of Royston Choral Society have been contributing their desert island playlists for the past 12 months. You can listen to the choices of seven RCS members, including Musical Director Andrew O’Brien, on our website.

If you’re still staring at a blank sheet of paper, while the water laps at your feet, here are some tips from the BBC about being musically marooned.

Do send us your selection for publication on the Royston Choral Society website.
