Katherine Jenkins visits the magnificent Salisbury Cathedral to celebrate Candlemas - the commemoration of the infant Jesus being presented at the temple in Jerusalem. She discovers the origins and meaning of this ancient feast day with the canon chancellor and learns more about the cathedral's fascinating history from one of the tour guides.

Sean Fletcher visits Charles Farris Candles, a firm that manufacture and supply ten million candles to churches each year.

And nearly 12 months on from the devasting nerve agent attack in Salisbury, the cathedral's new dean, Nick Papadopulos, tells Katherine how the city is striving for peace and unity.

With hymns and songs from across the UK celebrating God's light shining in the darkness.
