After listening to the samples, I am going to have to get this CD. It has several of my favorites on it and the new ones are so peaceful.

Almost perfect

Loved this CD. The songs are perfect. The only complaint is that it is very hard to understand the words on many of the songs. It is nice music, but would be great to understand without having to get out the folder from the cd case.

This is what I love. Please do more of these.

Loved it. Please try to include a little sheet of the words to the music in the cd's so that we can be more fully enlightened as we enjoy the melody. As is typical with choirs, unless you know the lyrics it's not always easy to discern each word. Thank you.

About the Author

Mormon Tabernacle Choir

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.
