BBC Radio 4’s Sunday Worship, 8.10am – “Unless the Lord builds the house…”

The Bishop of Salisbury, Nicholas Holtam, marks the 800th anniversary of Salisbury Cathedral and its move from Old Sarum. The original Salisbury Cathedral was completed at Old Sarum in 1092 under Osmund, the first Bishop of Salisbury. In 1220, the foundations were laid for this Cathedral on the ‘New Sarum’ site and within 38 years, the main body of the building was completed. Bishop Nicholas and the Cathedral’s Canon Precentor, the Revd Anna Macham, reflect on what this very special building means for the people of God in the city and diocese, and the vision, faith and human ingenuity that not only saw this building raised, but eight centuries on, ensure it remains open, if only virtually. Salisbury Cathedral 800 year celebration.

BBC 1’s Songs of Praise is being broadcast on Sunday at 1.15pm. “Faith and Farming”: The Revd Kate Bottley looks back on some of Songs of Praise’s most moving and uplifting stories from across the farming community. Kate has cream tea with a bishop at one of the largest agricultural events in the UK, the Great Yorkshire Show. JB Gill finds out about a church set up in the middle of a farm, and Aled Jones has a go a duck herding. With hymns and worship songs to raise spirits and comfort the soul, including a special performance of a traditional blessing by soprano Margaret Keys. (All recorded before the current closure of church buildings.)

The Shows must go on. The Andrew Lloyd Webber series of free YouTube streaming continues on Friday, available from 7pm for 48 hours. This week, rather than a full musical, it’s The Royal Albert Hall Celebration (for ALW’s 50th birthday) from 1998. It features songs from Evita, Cats, Sunset Boulevard, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, Phantom of the Opera and Jesus Christ Superstar sung by some of the best-known performers in these musicals.
