Synopsis

Album Description
The Cantamus Girls Choir are a 40 strong female choir whose members are between 13 and 19 from the town of Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. They have been a local institution since the choir was first formed 38 years ago. They continue to be an inspiration to a community that has suffered in recent years. In an age where we are bombarded by images of teenage pregnancy, drug taking and binge drinking, here is a window on another world of genuine youthful Endeavour, exuberance and dedication. There are sponsored sings and carol concerts to help fund the cost of hiring the coach that takes the choir to recitals all over the UK and Europe. This is no amateur operation, however. Through the network of helpers, voice coaches and relentless rehearsals, this is a multi award-winning group. They are currently the Olympic Choral Champions - a competition which involves 150 choirs from 45 countries. EMI. 2005.
 

CD Reviews

Absolutely awesome!
Singer | England | 12/12/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an amazing album which appeals to young toddlers and old dodderers. It is hard to believe that this breathtaking singing of both popular pieces like "Fix You" and "Everybody's gotta learn sometime" and a few standard classics comes from 13-19 year olds from the middle of England (Robin Hood country; a former coal-mining area)and not from a professional group.

The girls' singing make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, give you goosepimples and bring tears to your eyes - in fact, give you a heart-warming experience!

Buy the album for yourself. Send the single to all your relatives, friends, classmates, teachers. They'll love you for it!"
