In the same tradition as his popular A Festival of Lessons and Carols and Tenebrae: A Service of Darkness, Hopson has created a unique festival service featuring hymn writers through the ages. This is an historical overview of hymnody, featuring eleven significant hymn writers, from fourth-century Bishop Ambrose through twentieth-century Sydney Carter, telling their own stories in the first person.
