A composer is elevated to the House of Lords

My Radio 3 colleague Michael Berkeley has been upgraded to the House of Lords as a cross-bench peer. Congratulations, Michael!


He will not be alone in the House. Andrew Lloyd Webber has preceded him, on the Conservative side. Before that, we think the last composer to be made a Lord was Benjamin Britten – and that was on his deathbed. He never attended. Michael, by contrast, will be a working peer.
