Thanks to HK for sharing with me on The Canticle Singers. I was watching their performance in May 2009, and would say that it is absolutely awesome!

The Canticle Singers (TCS) proudly presents the dramatic musical TWO FROM GALILEE by Robert Sterling and Karla Worley. The family styled musical is based on a novel of the same title by Marjorie Holmes that was on theNew York Times 1972 best seller list and one of the top 10 best selling novels that year. The musical played at the Peter J Sharpe Theatre at Symphony Space on Broadway in 2006 and has been staged in many countries.

TWO FROM GALILEE revolves around a young couple who are very much in love. Ensnared in family conflicts, a hostile world and by an awesome responsibility, they fight for their one true love and to fulfill their dreams. But trust is shaken and love questioned, revealing a family's shame and a husband's doubt until the couple realizes that it is not all about finding true love but about life's purpose and calling. The musical encompasses dramatic and comic elements and is backed by a lush musical score journeying through a variety of moods and emotions with rhythmic numbers, rousing choruses, contemplative themes and soaring refrains.  The musical features a cast of 25 performers.  Net proceeds of the production after deducting production costs and overheads will go towards St Barnabas Home for Children and  The Tondo Community Project.

TCS, an accomplished community chorus and performing arts group, comprises people from diverse backgrounds. Founded in 1992, it has 15 successful productions to date including Be Our Guest in May 2009 andA Grand Night for Singing in July 2008 which drew passionate audience responses and critical acclaim. TCS was nominated for Best Group Performance–Voice at the 2004 Boh Cameronian Arts Awards for the musical Do You Hear the People Sing? TCS productions have benefitted numerous charitable causes and organizations, touching lives in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
