Editorial Reviews

Each year, the Christmas concert presented by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square is seen by more than 85,000 people live and by millions more via television broadcast. It is a full-scale production featuring world-class musicians, soloists, dancers, narrators, and music that leaves viewers in awe year after year. This year, the Choir was joined by pop music sensation and platinum recording artist David Archuleta. David s clear and powerful vocals paired with the Choir s classic Christmas sound makes this album a must-have for any Christmas collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb holiday offering August 6, 2011
Last December, I was privileged to see one of the performances of this magnificent holiday concert and have been eagerly awaiting the DVD ever since. The choir was in top form singing of what they love, the dancers were amusing if a little campy, and the narrator Micheal York was expressive and warm. But the standout of the evening was soloist David Archuleta (only 19 at the time) whose voice soared yet caressed each lyric. The love in David's voice was felt by each one of the 10's of thousands in he audience and I know I am not the only one who left with tears in her eyes.

Though I have and will continue to travel far and wide to see the wonderful musical talent that is David Archuleta, I was not among the lucky few who attended this Christmas concert, and have waited since last December to finally see this dvd. It does not disappoint. The show is a beautiful, traditional, and joyful celebration of the Christmas holiday, the Choir is on point, as one would expect, and Michael York an elegant pro. But, by far and away, for me, it is David Archuleta that shines with his characteristic grace, stunning vocals, and polished professionalism beyond his young years. David elevates any music he sings, and particularly Christmas songs, which he says are among his favorites and most meaningful to perform, and are a fit for his stunning vocals and the emotionality he evokes from a song. As someone else said here, he doesn't sing, but rather caresses each lyric, finding the emotion in each song and telling the story with careful intention.
He is a master craftsman with music.
My neighbors must wonder why they hear Christmas music coming from my condo in early Sept., but they better get used to it...as with David's "Christmas From The Heart" cd, this performance dvd will be enjoyed in my home all year, when the spirit moves...it is, after all, simply beautiful music! This dvd is one for anyone's Christmas collection. Well Done & Thank You.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Glad Christmas Tidings' WILL Gladden Your Heart! October 14, 2011
Verified Purchase
Once again the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra's Christmas offering makes for superb visual and aural entertainment with unequalled sound and picture quality - just magnificent! Each year the programs are becoming more spectacular, and this, the latest in 2011 on DVD is a testament to the on-going commitment of all of those concerned in its production, from the television director Lee Wessman to the conductor Mack Wilberg and every competent volunteer in between. It goes without saying that they are truly professional in every respect of their craft.

What a refreshing talent David Archuleta is in this modern dysfunctional world of greed and unhappiness. Not only does he sing with a glorious pitch-perfect tone, but his eyes simply glow with the joy of singing with such a marvelous choir and orchestra in front of an audience of some 21,000 appreciative concert-goers in one of the world's largest concert halls. He is certainly a top role-model for today's youth.

The other prominent guest artist is the fine British actor of stage, screen and television, Michael York [ Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet (68); Cabaret (72) and as John the Baptist in Zeffirelli's Jesus of Nazareth (77) ] who beautifully narrates the story of the Tabernacle Choir's humble beginnings in Wales to their formation as a choir in a pioneering Salt Lake City. This disc also contains Backstage interviews with David Archuleta and Michael York. Well worth the viewing.

Having said all of that I can heartily recommend 'Glad Christmas Tidings' as an uplifting and beautiful escape from the troubled world we live in today. I might also recommend re-visiting some of the past Tabernacle Choir's Christmas programs of the 21st century that are still available to buy on DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oustanding! September 6, 2011

I had the privilege, too, to watch the live concert in Salt Lake City. I flew from Boston to see David and the choir together. That was a dream come true. David was superb, his velvet voice, his radiant smile, his good look ( he looked gorgeous in his tuxedo) and that wonderful choir of angels just made worth every single cent I spent to get there. I'm so happy to have this DVD soon. Since David was at American Idol I dreamed of a Christmas DVD with him and the Mormon Tabernacle choir. It's a tradition in our house to trim our Christmas tree while listening and watching to a DVD by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. What a treat we have now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cutie McCutie-pie croons Christmas carols with the choir September 16, 2011
Verified Purchase
My adorable, magical, musical monkey-boy pretend-imaginary son, David Archuleta --- the kid I lost at the mall in 1997 whom some nice family in Utah found and raised and he's just fine --- rings in Jesus' birthday with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and I couldn't be happier.

Watching the MOTAB Christmas specials every year was already a family tradition for ages, but having The Official Cutest Human Being Ever Born (well, at least since Jesus himself) as this year's guest just makes it that much more special.

No, my impulse to take Archuleta home, give him a room, a basket of kittens and cupcakes, and pay for his college will likely never come to pass. But events like this, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas Concert, is the next best thing to having him in your living room, giggling, gasping and warbling angelically.

Why the American music industry ignores (and, in fact, actively squelches) talented, money-making and popularity-poll winning people like Archuleta while giving all their support and promotion to magazine cover-ready kids who can't sing and need Autotune 24/7 is a mystery --- except that the latter are easier to "control" (i.e., yank the Autotune chord, and their careers are over). Meanwhile, David's a significant star overseas.

We need more David Archuletas. Not fewer.
