Celebrating 40 years
Singing the heart songs: 1980 to 2020
Singing from the heart 1980 to 2020
We celebrated the 40th anniversary of the International Staff Songsters in 2020. Since our founding in 1980 we have shared the heart songs of The Salvation Army, whether the songs are new or from our rich musical legacy.
All members, past and present, have been custodians of this purpose. We have the greatest gift and privilege to sing words and music inspired by scripture that teach us the truths of the Bible message and enhance our personal devotions and corporate worship.
Exactly 40 years to the day, in March 2020 the ISS returned to the venue of our first public performance - the Fairfield Halls, Croydon - for a Choral Symphony, hosted by singer and broadcaster Aled Jones.
