Oxford University Hospitals commission 'Breathe' song

A musical composition has been written to mark 300 years since the death of the benefactor of Oxford's first hospital.

Breathe was composed by Orlando Gough to celebrate the life of Dr John Radcliffe, who funded the Radcliffe Infirmary in the 18th Century.

The song will be performed live at the John Radcliffe and Churchill hospitals, and includes an amateur chorus of former patients.
