    Inspiring beautiful musical work! Must have for Christmas!!

    This magnificent work spotlights a very gifted musician and composer, Andrew T. Miller. He has written an amazing piece of music, rich with soaring sounds of choir and orchestra, captured with exquisite lighting that brilliantly enhances the musical setting in the cathedral. The singers are vocally impressive and marvelously portray the characters in this timeless story - a story interspersed with Liam Neeson's reverently delivered narration. Don't miss out on the chance to experience what will be a must see for every Christmas season!

    A reviewer

    This performance of The Birth of Christ was filmed in Dublin, Ireland at Christ Church Cathedral using choirs from both the Catholic and Anglican communities of Dublin and from America to tell the real story of Christmas from the point of view of these humble parents. Liam Neeson narrates this story of faith, humility and wonder. Andrew T. Miller's musical talent along with the beauty of the soloists melding with an excellent choir will surely delight all who see and hear this work.

    Magnificant!! A must have for this Christmas Season!!

    This glorious music written by Andrew T. Miller brings to the familiar Christmas story a freshness and new vitality. The music makes the characters come alive in a wonderful new way. Christ Church Cathedral is newly awash with colorful lighting, adding a dimension of feeling to the Christmas story rivaled only by the light of the Bethlehem star. It is music for today's listeners...one not to be missed by anyone this holiday season! This magnificant production will make a great Christmas gift for all those on your list, and will be a valuable musical treasure for years to come!
