Today’s Songs of Praise on BBC1 television at 14:15 Swiss time.
Aled Jones meets Songs of Praise conductor Ken Burton to discuss why, in times of difficulty and trouble, the singing of Christian hymns can lift our hearts and soothe our souls. We revisit Sean Fletcher’s meeting with Graham Kendrick, who talked about writing his generation-defining song Shine Jesus Shine in the 1980s. Aled also recalls Pam Rhodes’s meeting with Catholic hymnwriter Bernadette Farrell, and American singer-songwriter and Grammy-winner Michael W Smith reflects on his career and friendship with evangelist Billy Graham. Hymns from the recent Songs of Praise archive include Graham Kendrick’s Shine Jesus Shine, Bernadette Farrell’s Christ Be Our Light, and the contemporary classic In Christ Alone. Recorded before current restrictions.
