The third in a series of Brigham Young University celebratory programs, Songs of Praise and Remembrance builds on the tradition of A Thanksgiving of American Folk Hymns and A Celebration of Christmas. The award-winning conductors contributed many of the moving arrangements. Energized by the music and its messages--and the capability of sharing that message worldwide--more than 400 singers combined with the BYU Philharmonic Orchestra to perform for vast public television audiences.
Songs of Praise is a BBC Television religious programme based around Christian hymns which began in October 1961. It is the most-watched British religious television programme. The first edition was broadcast from the Tabernacle Baptist Church in Cardiff, and the series is the longest-running of its kind on television anywhere in the world.
