Gauri Taylor-Nayar tells her moving story of grief, faith and music. The programme, broadcast first on Easter Sunday, won Silver at the Christian Broadcasting Council Media Awards.

  • Get Me To Gethsemane

    Another chance to hear a programme which was originally broadcast on Easter Sunday and which focuses on the story of one woman whose understanding of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus has been forged through her personal experience of suffering and loss but also through her close relationship with a choir.

    Gauri Taylor-Nayar is musical director of the Cathays Methodist Community Choir in Cardiff which takes part in church services, gives concerts and occasionally performs competitively. But to Gauri the choir is more than a singing group. It has proved to be a lifeline following the death of her young husband and her subsequent breakdown.

    In this programme, recorded during preparations for the choir’s Holy Week performance “Get Me To Gethsemane”, she talks candidly about her experience of bereavement and personal loss and how it has deepened her understanding of letting go and giving all to God.
