This album is incredible, the choir sounds like they are leading a true celebration with these songs. I feel like it's the perfect soundtrack for Spring and for Easter! The last song in particular is so powerful. I recommend this album to everyone!

There are six beautiful songs on the new CD He is Risen performed by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir with the Orchestra at Temple Square. True to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's reputation, the harmonies are gorgeous and bring the spirit of the song straight to the listener! Each song on this CD testifies of the Easter season. The orchestra is beautiful, the songs are gorgeous and the wonderful voices of the choir bring the spirit of Christ straight to you. I could listen to these six songs on repeat; what a beautiful blend of vocal harmony and orchestra! This is definitely one that you will listen to over and over again!
I received a complimentary copy of this CD; all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I love all things MO TAB (what we call the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in our house). Their music is so beautiful, uplifting, and soothing. This CD is all of those things :). When I get a new CD from Deseret Book, I add it to the collection I have in my van that we listen to on Sundays. It helps us get in a better "mood" before church. Sometimes we don't leave in a happy mood. But you cannot help but feel the spirit when listening to this beautiful music. I just love it.
Christ the Lord Has Risen Today is one of my favorite hymns so listening to the MO TAB sing it makes me happy. I am amazed at how powerful the music is. There are 360 members and when they sing it give me chills. It's amazing. Beautiful. Their combined voices are angelic. I am sure individually they are just as angelic.
This is a wonderful CD to help celebrate Easter. Each song is a beautiful representation of Christ and all he has done for us. I really cannot give this CD enough praise. I just love the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. They are so talented. I love to be able to turn on any CD of theirs and feel the instant power of the spirit. It's a beautiful thing.
Thanks to Deseret Book's Michelle Moor and Adam Young for letting me be part of this tour and review. It has been a pleasure!
