In the second of four special Advent programmes, Roger Royle presents favourite hymns from Magdalene College, Cambridge.
Hark! A herald voice is calling; There shall a star from Jacob come forth; On Jordan's bank; The Lord will come and not be slow; The truth from above; Wake! 0 wake; Hark the glad song; Lord, thy word abideth.
