Abide with Me: A Photographic Journey Through Great British Hymns Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Vividly portrays the inspiration and history of twenty-five of the most popular hymns

Highlights the faithful work of twenty composers, like John Newton, Henry Lyte, and Sarah Flowers Adams

Includes a free 24-song CD featuring beloved hymns, performed by Ray Walker of the Jordanaires and other artists.

These beloved British hymns — and the others whose stories are presented in this stunning collection — are the songs that have inspired and comforted worshippers for over three hundred years. The sites where they were composed--brilliantly captured by internationally-acclaimed Irish photographer Paul Seawright and described by American writer and literary scholar John Parker — are presented here, many for the first time. You will be able to see and experience the settings that produced the Church's most magnificent hymns.

Synopsis:

IN THE ENGLISH-SPEAKING WORLD, ONE BODY OF POETRY AND MUSIC HAS BEEN VOICED AND LOVED DURING THE PAST THREE HUNDRED YEARS BY MORE PEOPLE THAN ANY OTHER: BRITISH HYMNS.
