Notes & Reviews:
Mormon Tabernacle organists John Longhurst, Clay Christiansen, and Richard Elliot perform 23 hymn-based compositions showcasing the majestic Conference Center pipe organ. The impressive organ is a symbol of the importance Latter-day Saints place on worshipping God through music. Built over a three-year period by Schoenstien & Co., the organ features a five-manual console that controls the 7,708 pipes of its 130 ranks, spread across seven divisions. In this inaugural solo recording, familiar hymn tunes such as "We Thank Thee, O God for a Prophet," "I Need Thee Every Hour," and "Love at Home" combine with the regal strains of "Jehovah, Lord of Heaven and Earth" and "Now Thank We All Our God" to provide a wide range of religious expression and spiritually moving experience.
