Jaymi Bandtock Soloist with the St. Philip's Boys' Choir.

Once we talk about the dawn of the Libera era,everyone would think of Jaymi Bandtock -the first ever soloist of St.Philip's Boys Choir to appear in the public who,with a high voice and truly faithful smile ,has brought the radiant light to all the world. Jaymi first showed his young face in 1984 when he sang San Damiano on Top of the Pops programme as an ordinary choir member.However,when the St.Philip's Boys Choir is taking its first step towards world-recognition during 1987-1988,Jaymi has already become the leader of the tide.In the album Sing Forever,Jaymi managed most of the solo parts on both classical and re-arranged pop songs and showed an amazing talent in high notes,thus created a world of angelic voices together with soloists Sam Harper,Matthew Arthey etc.

Jaymi Bandtock - Sing For Ever
Sing For Ever (BBC Enterprises CD REB 692, CD) 1988
Featuring Jaymi Bandtock   Sam Harper   Libera / Angel Voices   Jonathan Arthey   Matthew Arthey   Gareth Lowman  
Also released on cassette and LP (BBC Enterprises REB 692 / 5011755069216).

The LP cover reads "In the course of one week recently, the boys of St. Philip's Choir appeared on "Top of the Pops", sang a Mozart at Chichester Cathedral and recorded backing vocals for a film soundtrack. It wasn't a typical week, but the span of a musical style and presentation was quite familiar. With the serenity of songs like "Sing For Ever" and "Deep Peace" the calm of hymns like "The Lord's My Shepherd", and the catchy rhythms and sheer joy of "San Damiano" and "Light the Candles", the choir has won a name for itself on a variety of TV programmes from "Wogan" to "Val Doonican Show", from "Blue Peter" to the "Rock Gospel Show". The Boys - who come from schools in Croydon - sing the regular services at St. Philip's church, Norbury. They range in age from 8 to 13 though many stay on when their voices change to sing with the men's section of the choir. With the choir's mix of traditional and popular, new boys in the choir have to show that they can cope with basic dance steps, as well as sit perfectly still for a 15 minute sermon!"
