Entitled Lead Kindly Light, the new CD features contemporary re-workings of two of Cardinal Newman’s best-know hymn texts: Firmly I believe and, of course, the title track, Lead Kindly Light.
Fr Richard Duffield, Provost of the Birmingham Oratory and Vice Postulator of the Cause for the Canonisation of Cardinal Newman, speaking about Boyce & Stanley’s latest audio offering, said “Our awe at Newman’s mind can make us forget that he revealed his heart most clearly in his poems and prayers. These new musical settings are a great way to allow Newman’s heart to speak to the hearts of another generation”.
We truly hope that will be the case.
