I was on Radio 4 this morning….maybe you didn’t notice!
I must be honest, it was more a case of my croaky voice, and cough!
Our Cathedral is convenient for the BBC Studios in Glasgow, and the Morning Service was live from there from 8.10 am. That meant we had to be seated by 7.45! The Choir of 40 was its usual wonderful self with some unusual pieces (including one from a Salvation Army book), and the readings and Sermon were all about the dawning of the new day.
The uniquitous cold/cough which I brought into the Cathedral had to be stifled several times, and even my singing of the hymns had to be done with caution. I had two microphones quite close to where I was sitting, and I am sure that at least one cough may now be in the BBC archives. If you are a desperately-sad case, and want to see if you can spot it, then click on the link below…at least for about a week, and then the BBC will probably decide to edit it out after numerous complaints!
For a wonderful piece of music listen to the anthem …..which comes just after the Sermon….’The Quiet Heart….’ (words by James Morgan, and music by June Collin)….superb!
