About the Author
The 360 members of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir represent men and women from many different backgrounds and professions and range in age from 25 to 60. They reflect a medley of unique lives and experiences and are brought together by their love for singing and their faith. Their incomparable voices are the common chord that unites to form the choral group known all over the world as the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir originated in the mid-19th century in Salt Lake City. As the Latter-day Saints moved west, Church President Brigham Young included musicians among members of the advance parties. Consequently, a small choir first sang for a conference of the Church in the Salt Lake Valley on August 22, 1847, just 29 days after the first group arrived. The origins of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir may be found in the desire and commitment of early converts to include appropriate music in both sacred and secular events.
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has appeared at 13 world’s fairs and expositions, performed at the inaugurations of five U.S. presidents, and sung for numerous worldwide telecasts and special events. Five of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s recordings have achieved “gold record” and two have achieved “platinum record” status. The most popular was the Grammy-Award-winning 1959 release of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” with the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Majestic, happy music

If I were on a deserted island and could only bring one CD with me, this would be the one I would bring. This world needs more happy music to lighten our burdens. It is truly a work of beauty and majesty!
Soothing and reassuring
by Cherilyn - reviewed on October 13, 2008
I was introduced to this CD when my sister's mother-in-law gave it to my mother when my father passed away. "Like a Bridegroom to his Chosen" was just what she needed and I couldn't wait to get it for myself. The Tabernacle Choir is a one and only in the range of styles it can beautifully and whole-heartedly present; from solace to patriotism to dedication to the work of the Lord, the Spirit works through them to carry the message.
My favorite Sunday CD
by Amber - reviewed on September 26, 2008
I bought this CD simply for "I Believe in Christ," because the MTB's rendition is the most moving and uplifting song to me, but I instantly fell in love with the whole CD. I wasn't sure how much I'd like it overall, because I tend to favor more contemporary LDS artists, but for inviting the Spirit on a Sunday morning, there is nothing better!

This is an excellent work, and without reservation I highly recommend it for others (both members and non-members alike). In fact, this could serve as a superb missionary tool, akin to the 'Finding Faith in Christ' video. , The seventh title on this CD ('My Shepherd Will Supply My Need') is profoundly beautiful, and like all other pieces on this CD, immediately invites the Spirit. As the choir harmonizes during the piece, I found myself weeping. Without question, it is one of the most reflective numbers I've heard. , Overall, 'Consider the Lilies' is an absolute classic, and is wonderfully produced and orchestrated.

This has become my absolute favorite Tabernacle Choir CD. I recieved it a few days ago and I can't stop listening to it. Every phrase touches me. My favorites are My Shepherd Will Supply My Need, Jesu, the Very Thought Is Sweet, Pilgrims Hymn and Consider the Lilies but all are wonderful. I've pretty much decided that anything arranged by Mack Wilberg can be counted on to be stunningly beautiful. The Choir has never sounded better!
This cd will bring peace to your soul.

If you have not already listened to this superb recording, do so! I love all of the choir's albums, but this one is by far one of the best. There is not one selection that does not inspire or cause one to think. All the voices blend perfectly each time, with emotion and depth. If you have a bad day, busy day, or just need to be still, this cd will heal those times and bring peace to your soul.. guaranteed.
It is just the most wonderful, peaceful, uplifting music I have heard.

My sister Irene gave this beautiful CD to me three years ago and I have been listening to it as I go to sleep most nights. It is so soothing and peaceful and uplifts my soul from any and all trials. It turely has been a blessing in my life. I am on now looking for my most beloved song 'Come thou font of every blessing' hope that I find it. Sherene T.

Best MOTAB CD out there!
I love MOTAB
by Rachel - reviewed on October 23, 2008
I absolutely love the Mormon Tabernacle Choir-we have so many of their CDs in our home and play them so frequently that our 2 and 4 year old know all the words, which is way cute when the songs are more obscure (especially selections from the Messiah). This CD has some great songs on it, and they have become family favorites! Consider the Lillies is one of my all time favorite songs-that one alone is worth the buy!

This is a classic!
My family's fave MoTab CD. Brings the Spirit.
by Donna - reviewed on October 30, 2012
This CD was suggested to us by family friends. It was their favorite, and is now ours. The overall feeling of the CD is so uplifting and also worshipful. The orchestrations set a beautiful mood, then when you listen closer to the words, they teach of Christ. We give this as gifts whenever possible. Appropriate also for those who are not LDS.
