    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.

    Pure Christmas Spirit

    The choir is amazing! This CD is a great selection of the songs sung by the choir the last few Christmases. Many of the songs feature soloists. They are good, but the Choir's Gloria Processional, White Christmas, and Sleigh Ride steal the show.

    I love MOTAB

    I absolutely love the Mormon Tabernacle Choir-we have so many of their CDs in our home and play them so frequently that our 2 and 4 year old know all the words, which is way cute when the songs are more obscure (especially selections from the Messiah). This CD has some great songs on it, and they have become family favorites!

    Great Christmas CD

    I bought this CD specifically for 'Whence Is That Goodly Fragrance Flowing'; a song I fell in love with the first time I heard it. Was I surprised that in this CD I found several more that were equally as wonderful, especially 'What Shall We Give to the Babe in the Manger'. Mack Wilberg's arrangements are inspired. This is truely a Christmas album for everyone to enjoy and share during the season - and beyond.

    This is an incredible Christmas CD. It's high-energy and stays strong all the way through. The guest artists are wonderful. Before buying this I was turned off by the fact that it's a recording of live performances - I didn't know if the quality would be up to par - but I'm not disappointed. (Check out the sound clips on this website.) If I could have only one Christmas CD, this would be it.
