Sunday Half Hour - 05/09/2010
Women have been at the heart of the life of the Christian church since it began. There have been times, however, when their role has often been marginalised or, worse still, ignored. This week, Brian D'Arcy looks at women's contribution to Christian thought and worship through hymns, prayer and reflection. Music comes from choirs gathered in Wells Cathedral, directed by Matthew Owens. The organist is Jonathan Vaughn. Hymns include Tell out my soul, And did those feet and New every morning. The producer is Janet McLarty.
