He Is Risen

CD Details
Artist: Mormon Tabernacle Choir
Release Date: April 2014

Music can bring a reverence to your home and heart and give you a wonderful way to worship our Lord and Savior.

Especially at Easter we love to sing the songs of triumphant rejoicing!

These six songs will bring us closer to Christ and give us reason to proclaim our love for His sacrifice.

*Christ the Lord is Risen Today
*In the Garden
*When I Survey the Wondrous Cross
*Jesus Has Risen
*He Is Risen
*Worthy Is the Lamb That Was Slain

Our testimonies will be truly strengthened that "He Is Risen."

Beautifully sung and orchestrated this will be a CD worth playing over and over again.

About the Choir
The 360 members of the Mormon Tabernacle 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.

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir originated in the mid-19th century in Salt Lake City. As the Latter-day Saints moved west, Church President Brigham Young included musicians among members of the advance parties. Consequently, a small choir first sang for a conference of the Church in the Salt Lake Valley on August 22, 1847, just 29 days after the first group arrived. The origins of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir may be found in the desire and commitment of early converts to include appropriate music in both sacred and secular events.

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has appeared at 13 world’s fairs and expositions, performed at the inaugurations of five U.S. presidents, and sung for numerous worldwide telecasts and special events. Five of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s recordings have achieved “gold record” and two have achieved “platinum record” status. The most popular was the Grammy-Award-winning 1959 release of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” with the Philadelphia Orchestra.
