Revd Canon Stuart Holt has been an ordained Anglican priest for 33 years and is also a former teacher. He is a hospital chaplain and author of Ben and The Time Globe and Puppets in Praise (Harper Collins,1993). He has recorded and performed his spiritual songs throughout his ministry as a parish priest and performs in a group called The Rockin Revs. The songs are based around the experiences of life in ministry and evangelism. Stuart feels called to revive this theme and to develop the music for a stage production.
Stuart has performed the Bride with a band of musicians in a number of places during the 1990s and he feels it is an important theme to engage with and has a mystical attraction which Christians can engage with… we are the bride of Christ… the church! The recording of the bride songs was made with a variety of friends.
