The Christmas Collection
The St. Benedict Youth Choir will celebrate Christmas on October 26th this year, when we launch our highly-anticipated second CD release, The Christmas Collection. Featuring 11 traditional and contemporary songs and one original composition, arranged and produced by Stefano Cancelli and lyrics written by choir director, Tammie Cancelli.

For this follow-up CD, Tammie wrote The Voice Inside Me, a holiday inspired original composition with music composed by her husband Stef. Tamme says “The tune reflects the true meaning of the holidays – the joy and peace of the holiday season.”

The Christmas Collection was recorded in the choir loft of St. Benedict Parish in Etobicoke over two Saturdays in March 2001. It features such traditional holiday favourites as Sleigh Ride, Ave Maria, Angels Among Us (originally recorded by Alabama) featuring a solo by Mr. Ken Sutton and Somewhere In My Memory from the popular film Home Alone also featuring a solo by choir member Ms. Marie Menniti. The Golden Globe award winning song The Prayer, by Carole Bayer Sager and David Foster is recorded for the first time by a full choir in a new arrangement by Mr. Cancelli, with a featured solo by Ms. Cancelli. The choir also brings an upbeat African flavour to The Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth, originally recorded by David Bowie and Bing Crosby.

The Making of The Christmas Collection
It was truly festive! Imagine . . . celebrating and recreating Christmas in March!! Upon arrival to the loft all of the Collection Singers were adorned with necklaces of gold garland.

The Christmas Collection Singers
All the wonderful choir members who sing their little hearts out on this The Christmas Collection CD.
The Helpers - The Christmas Collection
I find the greatest value in that statement for God has given us these wonderful friends as Helpers. The running of the choir would not be possible without their love, hard work and continuous dedication.
