Such was the popular reception accorded to their debut album with MCI that we have returned to their songbook for this second wonderful collection, including favourite songs most of us have ourselves tried our best to sing on so many occasions, be it at Sunday School, at school assemblies, or in our own churches. – Roger St. Pierre
It is said that human voices are better music compared to any musical instruments, and this CD is the definite proof. With their heavenly voices, the St.Phillips Choir boys brings you to the land of serenity and offers you the peace of mind. This CD features 20 Christmas carols, some very popular, like White Christmas and The First Noel, but some seldom heard, like Saviour's Day and When a Child is Born. New song or not, the choir boys have added an innocent ambience to each song that absolutely touches the listener's heart. – Arie
