The Millennium Chorus album is now available on CD and tape, and the full unedited TV special is also available on home video and DVD.
The rich music of The Millennium Chorus takes the listener on a journey of hope as they hear "the greatest story ever sung". From the opening images of the cosmos in its pristine beauty, the music evokes themes of hope and fear, time, destiny, children, comfort and certainty. All are interwoven with the life and teaching of Jesus.
The sounds and imagery of children around the world are featured in the telecasts and the home video/DVD, for the new millennium belongs to them more than anyone else.
"The plight of children today gives us the most telling measure of the values we live by, and I hope that these songs will inspire action for change." - Graham Kendrick, composer of The Millennium Chorus
