23 December 2023 23:00 BBC Radio 3 Late Junction

In this special festive edition of Late Junction, we hand over the musical reins to comedian and long-time listener Tom Allen. When not busy with comedy panel shows, hosting The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice or on tour with his award-winning standup, Tom is a keen appreciator of the weird and wonderful in music, and shares some of his sonic favourites with us alongside stories and cheer.

Drawn to things that are melancholic, maudlin or camp, he’s a big fan of renaissance choral music, sea shanties, traditional folk songs, and a new genre he’s coined ‘Medieval Emo’. A Late Junction listener from his early teenage years, he shares some tracks he discovered via the show, as well as other songs close to his heart from the likes of Thomas Tallis, Sufjan Stevens and Kate Bush.

Plus there’s an exclusive mixtape from the legendary jazz collective The Sun Ra Arkestra.

250 years of 'Amazing Grace'. The hymn was written for a New Year service in 1773.

01 January 2023 BBC Radio 4 Sunday Worship BBC Sounds Available for 29 days. Featuring a broad variety of arrangements of the famous hymn and reflections from those who’ve performed or adapted it, including Bob Chilcott, Karen Gibson, John Rutter and Will Todd.

Also 08 January 2023 13:15 BBC1 S0ngs of Praise On 1 January 1773, John Newton’s now famous words were first performed in the parish church where he was curate. 250 years on, Claire visits that same church to discover the remarkable story behind the hymn, the extraordinary life of its composer and the reasons for the composition’s enduring power. In Olney, Claire meets local experts who reflect on the life of John Newton, from his early years of debauchery as a sailor and then as a slave trader to his later life as a dedicated clergy man, hymn writer and abolitionist. Claire hears how a moment of epiphany at sea sparked a deep Christian faith that helped him to realise the full horror of his actions and compelled him to spend the rest of his life serving others and striving to abolish the evil of slavery.

Amazing Grace. The Museum of the Bible suggests that the hymn was first sung at the Manor Of Olney rather than the Parish Church. "It was January 1, 1773. John Newton led his congregation down the road from the parish church in Olney, England, to Lord Dartmouth’s Great Hall to sing “new” music not traditionally allowed by the Anglican Church."

The Lordship of Olney; Lord Dartmouth’s great interest in the Evangelical Revival earned him the name of the Psalm Singer, and though Colonial Secretary in 1772–5 and Lord Privy Seal in 1775–82 he found opportunity for interest in the schemes of Newton and for correspondence with the leading members of the seriously-minded society of his day.

The Museum of the Bible; January 1, 2023, is the 250th anniversary of the first time “Amazing Grace” was ever sung. In celebration, Museum of the Bible has launched an online exhibit today. Enjoy a timeline of some of the most pivotal moments in the song’s life and see how each verse of the song corresponds to a part of Newton’s New Year’s Day sermon. Guests can also listen to different historical adaptations of the song through our jukebox feature, experiencing the many verses and tunes that have been part of the hymn.

05 January 2023 15:00 BBC Radio 4 Open Country Folk on the Hills. Then on BBC Sounds for a month.

Folk musician Johnny Campbell is recording an album of songs from the summits and industrial hotspots of northern England. Jez Lowe joins him at Kinder Scout in Derbyshire to celebrate ninety years since the ‘Right to Roam’ movement began and explore the traditional songs of the Peak District.

Jez meets local singer Bella Hardy to hear how her home in Edale has inspired and influenced her work, and writer Roly Smith who can explain the history of Kinder and the 1932 mass trespass. It may be ninety years ago, but for young global folk stars Kate Griffin and Ford Collier of Mishra, the call for a right to roam is still relevant.

They have recorded a version of Ewan MacColl’s ‘Manchester Rambler’, a song inspired by the Kinder trespass. Jez meets Kate, Ford, Johnny and Bella to hear how a new generation of musicians are continuing MacColl’s legacy of folk singers fighting for our rights in the countryside.

Open Country St Just in Midwinter broadcast Christmas Eve 2022 Available now (indefinitely?) on BBC Sounds

Helen Mark tries to live in the moment at a deserted cliff edge chapel, hears carols that have deep ties to Cornwall's tin mining heritage, and comes face to face with hell's snarling jaws as she visits the town of St Just in Penwith.

In the heart of the town is the "plen-an-gwari", one of the last of the Cornish medieval amphitheatres built to host a sequence of religious mystery plays, the Ordinalia. Centuries after their suppression, the plays were revived in the 2000s as a community-wide venture that once again brought them, and the "plen", to the centre of community life.

And at the Miner's Chapel we hear how the tin mines which once dominated the area gave rise to a tradition of local carolling that survives to this day, with Alan Cargeeg and his fellow singers.

Great Lives Adjoa Andoh on Zora Neale Hurston
https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m001hfck

Actor Adjoa Andoh has a list of TV, theatre and film credits as long as your arm. She's best known worldwide as Bridgerton's Lady Danbury, and is due to direct - and star in the title role - in a new production of Richard III. Her great life is the 20th century American writer and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston, author of "Their Eyes Were Watching God". An iconic figure in the literature of the jazz age, her name was all but forgotten after her death in 1960, before being pulled back into public consciousness in the US by fellow author Alice Walker in the 1970s.

Adjoa makes the case that we should all know more about Zora, a trailblazer who - on top of her writing career - researched zombies in the Caribbean and helped collect the stories of slavery's last survivors.

this evening, on the anniversary of Rabbie Burns' birthday (and also Ewan MacColl's), BBC Radio Ulster aired a programme about "fellow" songwriter, Lady Nairne. I recognised that name right away, but didn't recognise the name "Carolina Oliphant". I found the programme, immensely interesting, and commend it to you - even though it is mostly talk and a lot of the singing featured is performed in what I would call a parlour song style. Here is an article about the programme "The Secret Bard"

Knowing that her followers have short memories, Charlie Dore waited until the last moment to send us a newsletter:
Tonight at 9pm for the first time we’ll be playing live on Radio 2’s Folk Show with the now approaching legendary status Mark Radcliffe at the helm. We’re very honoured as the live sessions are a more rare event these days…three songs and a chat with Lord Radcliffe of Bolton. Hurrah!

The Hills are Alive! Commoners Choir in Calderdale - 2 Feb 2023 15:00
Ramblings -
Boff Whalley is best known for Tubthumping with the band Chumbawamba but now he’s a core member of the Leeds based Commoners Choir which he founded. They sing about the world around them, about inequality and injustice, and they also love to walk.
Cath Long, a fellow member, wrote to Ramblings to ask Clare to join them on a hike in the South Pennines near Todmorden in Calderdale, West Yorkshire.
So, on a chilly, wet and blustery Saturday in early January, they met by the Shepherd’s Rest pub and headed into the hills to ramble and sing.
Boff created a choir manifesto, and one aim was to 'rehearse until we're brilliant' and they really are. Their Skelmanthorpe Flag Song (https://youtu.be/SIsryw_3gfk), which they performed at the historic Basin Stone, was heard by fellow walkers at least two miles down in the valley. On a circular hike, which began and ended at the pub, they stopped off at Gaddings Dam, often described as the highest beach in the UK, where some choir members took the plunge and sang out from the wind-blown waves of the reservoir.
