Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;
From the cover: Sally Magnusson, the ever-popular presenter of BBCs Songs of Praise, reflects on her favourite hymns in this charming and beautifully illustrated anthology.
In Glorious Things Sally has selected 35 hymns that have special significance for her. There are favourites such as Abide With Me and When I Survey the Wondrous Cross, alongside less familiar gems like Just As a Single Flower, an Icelandic hymn translated by her father, which is a stirring anthem to the triumph of life over death.
Sallys experience of the joys and sorrows of life, and of the resilient capacity of hymns to mediate these, will find an echo in many lives.
Glorious Things is written with passion, wit and charm. It invites us to look at hymns in a new light, as glorious things which sink deep into our hearts and minds and remain there as milestones on our journey through life.
