Make a Joyful Noise: Vaughan Williams

I’m beginning to wonder if I dreamed hearing Roger Bolton say on Radio 4’s Sunday programme this morning that churches are being encouraged to include at least one hymn by Ralph Vaughan Williams in today’s worship, to celebrate this year’s centenary. The programme was looking at how an agnostic came to write such great church music. I’ve since searched in vain on Sunday’s useless web site for any more information. I thought Songs of Praise might be joining in but it seems they’ll be in Spain singing Shine, Jesus Shine, poor things. So if you know any more about this jolly good idea, do let me know! Meanwhile here’s Come Down, Oh Love Divine and Let All the World in Every Corner Sing on You Tube.
