Before the age of Kidz Bop, there was the The Langley Schools Music Project. Luckily for us, these 1976-77 recordings of a 60-kid chorus were discovered, dusted off and released to the general public.
The voices are raw and powerful and, yes, it does sound like a bunch of kids singing in a gymnasium, but they’re singing their hearts out and quite honestly there is something I cannot quite pinpoint about their haunting voices that just moves me and never fails to bring a tear or two to my eye. I received it as a baby gift when my now 5-year old son was born and it is still one of the most treasured gifts we received.Published February 27, 2008. Last updated September 16, 2018.
