Iyo Kailan Pa Man - The Philippine Madrigal Singers

Am a big fan of chorales and choirs. Not surprising since I used to sing with one. Am truly amazed and at awe whenever I would hear a choir sing a capella and in perfect harmony. Thus, I was pleasantly surprised when I learned that the Philippine Madrigal Singer's or Madz's has a new album (produced by Philam Group of Companies). Unfortunately, the album can only be bought at the Philam offices. So I'm just content to borrow my officemate's copies (they were given copies by AIG--work related thingee).

The double CD features songs in the Filipino vernacular. The first CD is more of folk songs such as "Dahil Sa Iyo", "Matud Nila" and "Dungawin Mo, Hirang" to name a few. The first CD has 15 songs. However, I love the 2nd CD more since it has their rendition of contemporary Filipino songs. I practically swooned over "Minsan Lang Kitang Iibigin" and have chosen it as my wedding march. It's such a beautiful song and I could imagine the choir singing it while I march down the aisle. It just bring tears to my eyes. Other songs in the 2nd cd are: "Bituing Walang Ningning", "Kailangan Kita", "Ikaw Lamang", "Kahit Isang Saglit", "Ikaw", "Sanay ay Ikaw na Nga", "Hanggang", "Sana'y Wala Nang Wakas" and "Pasko na, Sinta Ko".

For those who's near any Philam office, try to get a copy of their album: Iyo Kailan Pa Man... The Philippine Madrigal Singers.

Hi, I've been looking for this CD as well and am unable to find it. Wondering if you could burn the CD for me or send it as MP3s. I hope to play it for my wedding as well. I'm willing to pay for the costs of CD + postage + etc...
