Movie Reviews

"The Birth of Christ" - This DVD is Spectacular!
D. Shelly | Black Diamond, WA USA | 11/07/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I recently received copies of "The Birth of Christ" on both DVD and CD. The music from this performance is spectacular, inspiring, and at times transcendent - particularly during soprano soloist Amy Bils' rendition of The Magnificat in "Mary's Canticle." This piece alone is worth the purchase of the entire album! Add to that stellar performances by tenor Robert McPherson and baritone John B. Cooper, along with the beautiful acoustics and breathtaking lighting of Christ Church Cathedral in Dublin and altogether this recording represents an extraordinary musical masterpiece.

Composer Andrew T. Miller has created a modern classic that is sure to stand the test of time.

This will be at the top of my present list for 2007.

A once in a lifetime experience

"I am lucky to know Andy and was fortunate enough to work with him for some years before The Birth of Christ was officially released. The Federal Way Chorale first performed this cantata in December 2004. We knew right away this was destined for great things. I was also privileged to go to Dublin in August 2006 and participate in this performance. The music is spine tingling beautiful and I never get tired of hearing it. I still get tears in my eyes when I hear One Blessed Night and Mary's Canticle!

You won't be disappointed in this. Keep your eye on Andrew T. Miller because you will be hearing more from him. He has a great gift from God and is an extremely talented artist.

Your Imagination and Emotions will NOT be Disappointed in th
Chad Smithson | Seattle, WA | 10/20/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A Christmas story par-excellence! Your heart and emotions will flow from the start of "One Blessed Night" to its penultimate finish :>) Let your imagination float with the soaring colors, hues, acting, and, best of all, music recorded at Christ Church Cathedral (only 1 block from where Handel debuted "The Messiah"). The Protestant and Catholic choirs that were amassed for this production are only outdone by the tantalizing high-tenor tones of Robert McPherson (a regular with The Met), the haunting and beautiful baritone bravado engineered by one John B. Cooper, and the incomparable melodies fully embodied in Mother Mary by none other than...well, to find out, I guess you'll just have to get one, or some, of these for Christmas! :>) :>)"
Tears & Goosebumps
Edmund A. Poyneer II | Mountain Home, ID | 11/11/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm proud to say that Andy Miller is a friend of mine. I was unfortunately unable to participate in any of the performances of this brand new "classic" about the birth of our Lord.
Immediately after hearing that the DVD and CD were being release on Nov. 6, I immediately ordered both. I was fortunate to receive them, Saturday, Nov. 10, and immediately started viewing the DVD.
The title of my review describes my experience in viewing and listening. The sheer magnificence of the music, with all its nuances, raised the goosebumps. Listening to the soaring, lyrical lines, especially as sung by Robert McPherson and Amy Bils, brought the fountain of tears. It was also great to see the interplay of facial expressions, between the soloists.
It was a true delight, to watch Andy in action, directing the entire ensemble. Hearing that the ensemble was truly international and ecumenical in scope, added to the beauty of the experience."
