Innovative Worship Trio Page CXVI Unveil Derek Webb-mixed “re:hymns” Amid Stellar Critical Praise

The Chronicles of Narnia-inspired worship group Page CXVI bowed the Derek Webb-mixed re:hymns, their ambitious and long-anticipated remix compilation, today to listeners after garnering high marks for the project from critics. Comprised of all three former members of the largely popular The Autumn Film, Latifah Phillips, Reid Phillips, and Dann Stockton made a name for themselves by taking traditional worship hymns and creatively transforming them into new artistic expressions, bringing to the world accessible hymns for the modern listener.Having previously released four Hymns collections, the Boulder, CO-based trio recruited the swift production skills of esteemed singer-songwriter and former Caedmon’s Call frontman, Derek Webb, to reimagine songs from all four releases. Drummer Dann Stockton stated he was keen to have Webb take on an all-encompassing role in the band’s experimental new endeavor.

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.
