About the Author

The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square

The 360 members of The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square 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 Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square 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 Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square may be found in the desire and commitment of early converts to include appropriate music in both sacred and secular events.

The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square 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 Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square 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.

Fantastic!

While listening to this CD I keep getting drawn back to the most recent conferences, all of this music feels familiar and generates that same feeling that we felt during the conferences. All the big finale pieces are on there, so uplifting and inspiring. They almost sound different. Exciting times and this CD reflects it.

Please return to the Pre Wilberg choir

Although I love Brother Wilber's orchestral arrangments, I don't like the direction the choir has followed in the past couple of decades. The choir is capable of much more. There is way too much singing in unison under Brother Wilberg; and the words -- esepcially from the women -- have become mushed -- so much so that without already being familiar with them, you can't understand them -- even with excellent hearing. Beyond that, the orchestra nearly always overpowers the choir. I have sung nearly all my life, and my high school choir director was a former assistant director for the Tabernacle Choir. He always instructed us that instruments are more powerful than human voices and should typically be subordinate in a choral work. Brother Wilberg has obviously not learned this. I was really excited when the Orchastra at Temple Square was formed because of the opportunities I thought it would provide to enrich the audience's choral experience, but I have been greatly disappointed over the years to see Brother Wilberg's orchestral arrangments take precedence nearly all of the time. Please fix this!

The digital download is very complicated on a Mac computer. Mac owners are better off to buy the CD

Amazing

Love the new direction of the choir and the new sound. You can actually hear most of the words on this album. It is a very beautiful and inspiring album.

Peaceful!

I have always loved listening to The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square. This collection of hymns is soothing and one that I have listened to over and over. It brings peace to my soul.
