Page CXVI is a project dedicated to re-imagining the hymns of the Church and presenting them in a fresh way to ensure their accessibility and relevance to new generations. The name is a nod to page 116 in The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis. It is a poignant passage where Aslan begins to sing Narnia into creation out of a black void. It starts,
“In the darkness something was happening at last. A voice had begun to sing. It was very far away and Digory found it hard to decide from what direction it was coming. Sometimes it seemed to come from all directions at once. Sometimes he almost thought it was coming out of the earth beneath them. Its lower notes were deep enough to be the voice of the earth herself. There were no words. There was hardly even a tune. But it was, beyond comparison, the most beautiful noise he had ever heard. It was so beautiful he could hardly bear it.”
In celebration of the bands 7 years of making music, they are holding a jubilee and giving away their entire catalog (including each of the albums from the member’s other group, The Autumn Film) for free! Do not miss out on this great opportunity to enrich your catalog of hymns, and your private moments of worship and prayer. We’re talking about a lot of great music:
