Album Review

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir was formed in 1847 and the all-volunteer choir recorded its first record, “Let the Mountains Shout for Joy,” on September 1, 1910, and in the hundred years since, the choir — which currently has 360 members — has recorded 175 albums and done thousands of concerts and performances. This two-disc set (which also includes a bonus CD and DVD) collects some of the best tracks from that long legacy, including a digitally cleaned-up version of the original 1910 recording of “Let the Mountains Shout for Joy” and a similarly reconstituted “Worthy of the Lamb” from 1927. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has become an American institution (they’re the longest standing recording group in the United States) and this fine set shows why.

Customer Reviews

Excellent compilation

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has been recording longer than any American artist. Their first recording was made with Columbia Records in 1910 and they've been making history ever since. This would be what you would call a Greatest Hits compilation. Notable selections are "Call of the Champions" which was the 2002 Olympic Theme penned by John Williams, the Battle Hymn of the Republic (the choir won a Grammy for this song) and Amazing Grace. These are spectacular numbers. The choir, though it's 360-strong, shines in intimate numbers as well, like Homeward Bound and Danny Boy. This is a must-have collection for any choral affecianado.

John Parry was named the choir's first official conductor in 1849, and two years later, construction was completed on the first Tabernacle church, followed in 1867 by the dome-roofed Tabernacle facility which still exists. The 150-member choir assembled for the facility's October 6th opening was at that time the largest in the U.S.,...
