I'm not a Mormon, and I have zero interest in their religion, but their choir is wonderful. What sets this album apart from many other Mo tab albums is that it seems programmed for quiet, meditative moments. I think that those looking for New Age or ambient music would love this because this is perfect for a period of contemplation, resting after a rough day, or napping.
Peaceful music and words
This album is aptly named- every song is so relaxing and peaceful. I never thought I'd like to listen to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, but now as a mother of young children, I find myself wanting to listen to these songs - especially when I'm having a rough day and want something uplifting and inspiring. My favorite song is "Come, Let Us Anew" Listen to the words and you can't help but feel at peace and want to be more Christ-like.
Solace enfolded in the wings of Christ
As I lie here in the middle of the night, unable to sleep; twisted visions of my grief o'ertaking me, wracking me with sobs, I cry out to my God as the Psalmists did - praying for the peace that passes all understanding, praying for a song I could sing that would help drown out the painful visions and words plaguing me, and bring my focus to the almighty God.
Little did I know that I would find an entire album that not only sings with me in my grief, but to me in comfort and encouragement. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and orchestra are truly an ensemble of angels, wrapping me in the wings of Christ and soothing me with one of God's most beautiful gifts to His children: music. Praise God for this album and and every individual who made it happen. It shall be my comfort.
