    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.

    We love Natalie Cole AND The Mormon Tabernacle Choir. This is absolutely beautiful in stage design, concept, and performance. The sound is stunning! I will watch the televised performance in December, but I want to see it again and again. I always purchase a new Christmas CD/DVD. This year THIS IS IT!

    I wasn't able to attend the performance, so I am very grateful that there was a DVD made. I thought the whole performance was wonderful. The Mormon Tabernacle, the children's choir, Ms. Cole, the dancers, and Mr David McCullough all performed to perfection. I loved the stories told by Mr McCullough about the 2 Christmas songs along with the touching pictures of World War II soldiers. May these wonderful Christmas programs by the choir go on for many many years. Can't wait to add it my Christmas DVD collection.
