About Page CXVI:
After forming The Autumn Film in 2005, band members Reid and Latifah Phillips and Dann Stockton led worship at numerous churches and found they could not deny the strong beckoning of the hymn. They decided to develop a parallel band; the same people but a new purpose, one of making hymns accessible again under the new name. Page CXVI – the somewhat cryptic name was intentional. It’s drawn from the page number in a particular copy of The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis, specifically the passage where Aslan begins to sing Narnia into creation out of a black void. Since the formation of this new project, the band has recorded four Hymns albums and has toured “just about every state.” Page CXVI is also planning a lullaby collection of Hymns to be released this fall.
