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.

William Clayton is my great-great-great grandfather. Come, Come Ye Saints is a very special song to me and my family.
Great sound, but what's with the packaging?

I have always loved this recording. I wore out a cassette copy of this and was delighted to see it reissued and remastered. The re-mastering sounds fabulous. I don't remember the original sounding like this I love it. , My one small complaint is the packaging. The packaging is very minimal which in and of itself is not neccesarily a bad thing. But the fact that it is kind of minimal packaging makes it harder to find among all the standard jewel cases.

As always, anything done by the MTC is wonderful.
