    Some info about this choir.

    The Langley Schools Music Project is a collection of children's chorus recordings made from 1976-77 by Canadian music teacher Hans Fenger in a school gymnasium in Langley, British Columbia, near Vancouver. The students performed unique versions of pop hits by the likes of The Beach Boys, David Bowie, and Paul McCartney. The recordings were quickly forgotten until Victoria record collector Brian Linds found the first record in a thrift store and sent it to author, WFMU radio DJ, and "outsider music" enthusiast Irwin Chusid in 2000. After ten label rejections, Irwin managed to get the album released on Bar/None Records, and it immediately created an international buzz, making many end-of-the-year best album lists in 2001. VH-1 coordinated a reunion of Fenger and dozens of his former students in 2002, and produced a documentary about the project.

    Jack Black's 2003 hit film School of Rock was inspired by the Langley CD.
