Notes & Reviews:

At last! The powerful, melodic, youthful BYU Men's Chorus returns to the world of CDs with Praise Him. You'll hear timeless gems such as "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" and "Danny Boy," along with audience favorites such as the unbelievable "Joshua Fit the Battle of Jerico." Discover why everybody's saying . . . YOU GOTTA HEAR THIS.

"Having been privileged enough to participate in the BYU Men's Chorus, I am thrilled at this miraculous CD's release. Every track is filled with the purest spirit that music can bring, and the album as a whole testifies resolutely of Christ and our eternal reliance on Him and His Atonement. Whether you're religious or not, this is a wonderful collection of music, and the mixes sound even better than ever performed live.

If you get one Men's Chorus CD, this is the one I recommend. It has the perfect balance of the soft, poignant hymns and lively, rousing folk songs. From the thrilling Joshua, the brassy Personent hodie, and the stirring Praise My Soul to the tender Danny Boy, the beautiful Down in the Valley, and poetic The Long Day Closes, this CD is a miracle.
