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. Join us on this photographic journey across England and Wales as we highlight the places that gave birth to Christianity’s most inspiring and unforgettable music.
