boysingers1About the Boy Singers
The Boy Singers, organized in 1961, are boys from 7 to 14 years of age, whose voices are unchanged. They have appeared from coast to coast under the auspices of the churches of Christ. Songs recorded in this album are part of the repertoire of their annual three month concert tour.
The Boy Singers specialize in religious music, hymns, spirituals, and the more familiar songs used in church worship, suitable for youthful, unchanged voices. Their concerts are always in an a cappella style, and demonstrate the beauty of the unaccompanied human voice and its profound effect on upon the hearer.

  1. This sounds like something that would play in the background of a movie, while:

    -Someone was being murdered
    -Someone was running away
    -Someone was burying a body
    -Someone was being executed

    Essentially… the creep factor is 100.

  2. I totally agree. I could see some scene of ultra violence (the end of The Wild Bunch or Bonnie and Clyde(in slow-motion)) but with snow falling. And is it just me or do they sound like they’ve got some English street urchins in the mix as well?

  3. you guys are crackin’ me up. and yes, they do kind of slip into an English accent… in Texas. i can’t explain…
