Senator Mar Roxas, along with three other senators, praised the Philippine Madrigal Singers for winning the 2007 European Grand Prix for Choral Singing, in Arezzo, Italy.

"The Philippine Madrigal Singers should be recognized for their unprecedented and unparalleled excellence in choral singing, which has brought pride, joy, and inspiration to the Filipino people through their exemplary and world-class choral performance in international competitions," the lawmakers said in filing Senate Resolution No. 107 in the group's honor.

Senators Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III, Rodolfo Biazon and Ramon "Bong" Revilla, Jr. co-authored the measure.

The 2007 European Grand Prix for Choral Singing is an annual competition for the winners of the six European choral competitions and inaugurated in 1989.

This year, the Philippine Madrigal Singers, headed by Mark Anthony Carpio, had bested other world-renowned choral groups such as the Taipei Chamber Singers, Cuba's Schola Cantorum Coralina, Hungary's Cantemus Choir and Russia's Children's Choir Vesna.

The Senators pointed out that the Madrigal Singers had already won the European Grand Prix back in 1997. "The Philippine Madrigal Singers is the first and only choral group in the world to win twice the European Grand Prix for Choral Singing, which is also internationally known as the 'Choral Olympics' of the world," they noted.
