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.

Great Idea

Marvelous album; many of the less-listened-to pieces are treasures, like the poignant melody in the Peter Pan song and I particularly liked the energy and preserved Tabernacle acoustics in "Cum Sancto Spriritu. . ."

It doesn't get much better than this! The Choir and Orchestra are in top form.

Nice recording

This is a very nice CD. There is a lot of variety on here which is nice. I really like Ryan Murphy's "Pilgrim Song." I've loved that once since the first time I heard it a few years ago. My two other favorite tracks are "Glory" and "Psalm 148." I have earlier recordings of both of those and they are still favorites of mine. I love the fact that the organ has a particular prominence in Psalm 148. I love the sound of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir accompanied by organ. It would be nice to hear more of that. A few tracks with just choir and organ would be absolutely wonderful on the next recording. Overall, it's a great recording.
