from the Farnham Maltings Jazz Festival
When the Real Ale and Thunder Jazz Band included popular hymns such as 'The old rugged cross' in their repertoire, they found their audience joining in. It seemed the band was tapping a source of folk religion. 'Somehow there was an added something - an intensity,' says Chris Walker, the band's leader. Perhaps this is because the roots of jazz are to be found in the spirituals and gospel music of American slaves. In 1985 the band led vespers in Salisbury Cathedral; since then they have played in other churches in the south.
Tonight's programme goes back to one of the hottest days of last summer, when the band was joined at the Farnham Maltings by jazz enthusiasts and Christians from local churches.
Sally Magnusson talks to members of the band. She meets Leo Gale, a harmonica player, as he recovers from a paralysing illness; and jazz singer Nanette Welmans talks to Sally about her faith. What a friend we have in Jesus; The old rugged cross; Just a little while to stay here; Just a closer walk with thee; For me to live is Christ; Abide with me; Surprise medley Assistant producer Christopher Loughlin

My Father's World
"The city is like Niagara Falls. The closer you live to the brink, the more likely you will be swept over the edge. We like to live a long way upstream.' The old Mennonite communities of Canada are descendants of European Protestants who fled from terrible persecution in the 17th and 18th centuries. They have retained a separate identity, avoiding the modem world and preserving a 200-year-old way of life. But at the fringes compromises are being made. Everyman visits the farming communities where the old values of peace, humility, hard work and brotherhood are still the priority. What happens when the modern world gets too close? 'There's lots of room, we just move a little further out.'

Everyman editor DANIEL WOLF
