Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Friends
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has collaborated with some of the most legendary vocalists and performers over the years. For this album, the Choir has assembled an unprecedented collection of recordings taken from standout performances over the past 15 years. Most of these performances were recorded live at the 20,000+ seat Conference Center in Salt Lake City. In addition, some real gems were uncovered or created specifically for this album, including a performance recorded live before millions of viewers at the start of the 2002 Winter Olympics (Sting & Yo-Yo Ma performing "Fragile") and new recordings such as Amy Grant's "Thy Word," The King's Singers' "I'm Running On," and Santino Fontana's "He Lives in You."
Album includes 11 tracks:

Mormon Tabernacle Choir & Friends is a delightful compilation of songs that the choir has sung with a variety of different professional musicians over the years. Starting with the choir performing with Sting and Yo-Yo Ma in "Fragile" the choir performs brilliantly. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the wide variety of different styles and performers. Some of these I'd heard elsewhere such as "Through Heaven's Eyes" with Brian Stokes Mitchell at a Christmas concert several years ago, but most of them I hadn't heard before. While these songs may not have the spiritual touch that so much of the choir's work does, they highlight the skill and versatility that the choir possesses. I recommend this collection for those who are already fans of the choir as well as those who may not have enjoyed their work before.
