On Sunday 20th June we had the privilege of recording several songs for BBC Radio 2’s Sunday Half Hour . The Sunday Half Hour which is presented by Father Brian D’Arcy, celebrates its 70th anniversary this month. The programme, which airs at 8:30pm, broadcasts weekly prayers, hymns and reflections on a set theme, and is one of only two remaining Christian programs on Radio 2, the other being Good Morning Sunday.
We featured on the June 27th episode, which focussed on the theme ‘holy ground’, with emphasis on the idea of making space for God and taking time for contemplation.
Also present at the recording were the choirs, singers and musicians from the parish of Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Sutton Coldfield.
The songs, ‘Make Me Holy’, ‘Behold the Lamb’, ‘Sweet Sacrament Divine’ and ‘All are Welcome’ were included in the programme, with the other songs we recorded to be broadcast on November 21st to mark the Feast of Christ the King.
