The Revival of Hymns - Wallingford Choir on Jeremy Vine Show, Sept 20th

A nice piece on the Jeremy Vine show on Radio 2 looked at the enduring popularity of traditional hymns, and they played some snippets and tracks from the Hymns Album. If you missed the show here's a link to the piece. BTW - seems like we're a hit with Sally Traffc too..!
Incidentally, the piece caused a bit of a twitter debate, comments from Ann Widdecombe, and articles in the Daily Mail and Daily Express when Jeremy said he needed permission from the DG of the BBC to play a hymn.
Obviously Jeremy was joking, but this eventually involved the BBC having to release a statement to sort out any confusion. Still, it doesn't seem to have harmed our Amazon sales...
