Music Review: He Is Risen by The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra

He_is_risen_final_cover Released: April 2014

My Review:
This CD has 6 songs--most of them are familiar, but I didn't know two of them. I really enjoyed listening to these songs because during this time of year (Spring, Easter, etc), it's natural to think about Jesus Christ and the suffering He went through and His resurrection. Some of these songs were very somber and reflective, while others were more upbeat and joyous. I thought it was the perfect combination for the season and really enjoyed them all. I love the way the choir sounds and how powerful the music is.

The 360 members of this remarkable choir represent men and women from many different backgrounds and professions and range in age from 25 to 60. They reflect a medley of unique lives and experiences and are brought together by their love for singing and their faith. Their incomparable voices are the common chord that unites to form the choral group known all over the world as the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
