It's hard to find an ensemble more overwhelming and majestic sounding than the Morman Tabernacle Choir. It's also impossible to find an ensemble with a longer-lived history: the choir has been in existence since 1847. The authority of such history is apparent on the group's 2005 release THEN SINGS MY SOUL.
As usual, religious themes are central, with an emphasis on songs of Christian praise and worship, including a version of "The Lord's Prayer." The choice of repertoire is intriguing, however, with a mix of traditional compositions, hymns from the 19th century, and selections from 20th century composers like John Rutter, Thomas Matthews, and Peter Christian Lutkin.
