The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, once a small band of singers who in 1847 had just crossed the plains of America, has become a premier all-volunteer chorus with a world-famous, instantly recognizable sound. With great honor the Mormon Channel presents Mormon Tabernacle Choir Premieres.
From the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra on Temple Square comes Glory! Music of Rejoicing, a sensational new album overflowing with the majestic and grandiose sound the Choir is famous for. Glory! features music from masterworks, sacred anthems, a folk hymn, a song from the Broadway stage, and selections form some of the most eminent film composers of our day. Included are jubilant renditions of "Ode to Joy" from Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, Ennio Morricone's "Nella fantasia" from The Mission, and the frequntly requested anthem, "The Holy City." Infused with the powerful sound of the Choir, plus 110 instrumentalists, these songs will bring you to your feet!
