Presented by Ashley Dickinson
Did you know that one of our famous hymn writers was blind almost from birth and yet she wrote many thousands of hymns that included 'To God Be The Glory'?.
Or that another of our hymn writers had learned Latin at four years old, Greek at nine, French at ten and Hebrew at the ripe old age of eleven. He went on to write over 750 hymns.
Did you know that one of our well-known gospel songs was used as a secret slogan within a strictly Communist country?
Just some of the interesting facts behind the songs, tunes and modern versions of well-loved hymns. Let Ashley take you on The Journey on Sunday evenings from 6pm.
