The Sound of Glory

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Andrew Farach-Colton
The Sound of Glory surely refers to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's tone as well as to the religious spirit of this program. They make a huge, warm, and joyful noise that is incredibly uplifting, no matter what one's faith is. Here they sing 17 highly varied selections, including the soul-stirring "Battle Hymn of the Republic," the tender Irish tune "All Things Bright and Beautiful," and the Shaker melody "Simple Gifts" made famous in Copland's Appalachian Spring. With the choir accompanied by the Orchestra at Temple Square and the mammoth organ of the Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City, this recording is not for the faint of heart.

    Truly Glorious!

    From the first note to the last, this recording is full of beautiful, touching, and inspiring music. The power of the music is incredible--the sound and the quality, as well as the power of the music itself! I find my soul touched in new ways each time I listen. The choir and orchestra are superb, as are the many arrangements by Mack Wilberg and Barlow Bradford, two of the choir's directors. The recording of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" is riveting and deserves the platinum accolades of the previous recording the Choir did many years ago. I feel like a new and better person every time I listen to this album! Bravo!
