Songs of Praise at St Germain’s – an invitation to sing from the BBC

Songs of Praise LogoCome and sing with us!

Songs of Praise would like to invite members of your church to join us when we record two afternoons of great singing and praise at St Germain’s Church, Edgbaston, Birmingham B16 9TD

The first recording will be of classic praise and worship songs.  At the second recording we will be joined by the BBC Gospel Choir of the Year and the Birmingham Community Gospel Choir, to sing some great gospel hymns.

All the music will be broadcast in future editions of Songs of Praise.

The conductor will be Ken Burton, who has conducted numerous broadcasts on BBC Radio as well as for Songs of Praise. His extensive credits include leading one of his choirs to victory as the BBC Choir of the Year to working with major gospel artists such as Andraé Crouch and Donnie McClurkin.

We are especially keen for enthusiastic singers to join us for this recording, as they will become a specially-formed ‘combined choir’, who will lead the viewers at home in the singing.
