Overview

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. Although many of the songs are quiet and comforting, when the ensemble pulls out all the stops, your whole house will vibrate -- thanks, too, to Telarc's phenomenal sound quality, which will turn your living room into a sun-filled cathedral.
