This morning I watched Songs of Praise, not a programme I would normally think of seeing, but I was round friends having stayed the night and it was just before the Thames Jubilee Pageant.
Listening to “I Vow to Thee My Country” was very moving and reminded me of the days as a young boy when I was made to to go to church on Sundays. I was bored with the services but enjoyed singing some of the hymns my favourite being “Jerusalem”. God does have some good music.
Also from the show “We Will Stand Together”, was sung brilliantly by the operatic quartet Amore and I also enjoyed the Commonwealth anthem, “Stronger As One”, helped by the fact it was sung by the beautiful student soprano Laura Wright.
