Church’s children’s choirs unite for holiday CD benefit

The children’s Spirit and Inspire choirs at St. James Church in Solana Beach have produced a CD of Christmas music, “Listen to the Angels Sing,” aided by Grammy Award-winning sound engineer Steve Churchyard.

When it was played to the congregation on Dec. 6, church members promptly ordered more than 300 copies. The CD features a mix of traditional and contemporary Christmas music, and other songs of praise.

Choir Director Anne Marie Oldham assembled more than 40 singers and musicians from the school and parish community to perform on the CD. Proceeds will benefit St. James Church, St. James Academy and the St. James youth music ministry program.

The Inspire Choir (grades 4-6) and the Spirit Choir (grades 7 and above) provide music for the 11:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. Masses the first and second Sunday of each month at 625 S. Nardo Ave.

“Listen to the Angels Sing,” $17, is available at or at St. James Church following weekend Masses throughout December or by sending $23 (check or money order, includes tax, shipping and handling) to St. James-St. Leo Catholic Community, 625 S. Nardo Ave., Solana Beach, CA 92075.
