  • BBC Radio 4 Celebration of Ascension Day - Listen on demand on BBC Sounds
    Every year Radio 4 listeners fill the pews of St Martin-in-the-Fields for a broadcast celebration of Ascension Day. But this year is different. As congregations gather remotely, this is a different kind of service constructed from contributions from people across the country, recording from their own homes. It's a celebration, but also a time to reflect on the present and find hope for the future.
    Novelist and priest the Revd. Marie-Elsa Bragg offers a series of meditations, exploring on the fundamental place of physical touch in human experience and considering the nature of relationships built at a distance. The service, led by the Vicar of St Martin-in-the-Fields, the Revd. Dr Sam Wells, is a tapestry of words and music and culminates in a new recording of Handel's Hallelujah Chorus featuring the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and voices of Radio 4 listeners recorded from their own homes in lockdown around the country.
