Meeting of Titans: America’s best-loved choir meets the world’s favourite bass-baritone: Bryn Terfel and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir join forces in an inspiring survey of classical, spiritual, Welsh and American folk songs.

Recorded in Salt Lake City in May 2013, this “event” record is set to thrill classical audiences on both sides of the Atlantic – and beyond. Welsh bass-bartione powerhouse Bryn Terfel unites with the historic Mormon Tabernacle Choir (MTC) Known as “America’s Choir”, this extraordinary American musical institution was founded 166 years ago by American Pioneers, migrating at the time from the Midwest to Salt Lake ValleyMany of the original Pioneers included Mormons hailing from Wales – a connection that Bryn will make through music and song on this popular vocal and choral programme. Features spectacular new arrangements from the pen of the award-winning MTC Musical Director Mack Wilberg and also features special guests Tamara Mumford and Sissel Kyrkjebø. Prepare for the thrilling prospect of the 360-voice Mormon Tabernacle Choir and a full symphony orchestra, united in song with the acclaimed bassbaritone Bryn Terfel – a unique event and a unique album.
