God’s greatest hits

From our farflung correspondents, longtime Canuck reader NG send along this alert about a series running on Canadian television:

Vision TV in Canada is running a series called God’s Greatest Hits in which each of five shows features one hymn or spiritual.  Some choices were pretty obvious (Amazing Grace, Ava Maria) but I was surprised they went with Wade in the Water on spiritual night rather than Swing Low, Sweet Chariot. Abide With Me (rather than How Great Thou Art) was another interesting choice.  Hallelujah Chorus rounded out the group.  Have no idea if I’ll Fly Away was considered (but will watch show and let you know if it is mentioned).

More here. We’ll keep you posted if God makes any other interesting choices to which NG alerts us.

    I watched the first 30-minute show on TV in Canada which was on the song “Amazing Grace.” It was an extremely well-done documentary. I hope it and the remaining programs turns up on a network in the US and overseas. There was no discussion on how the 5 greatest hits were chosen.
