Editorial Reviews

2010 holiday release. 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 worldclass musicians, soloists, dancers, narrators, and music that leaves viewers in awe of the Choir's unmatched magnitude and musicality. This year the Choir was joined by none other than multiple Grammy-award winner Natalie Cole. Ms. Cole's trademark vocal style paired with the Choir's legendary sound makes for a stunning collection destined to become a new Christmas classic. An enchanting mix of traditional and contemporary Christmas songs. National PBS special featuring Mormon Tabernacle Choir,

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Fantastic Christmas Offering in 2010 October 19, 2010
You don't have to be of the Mormon faith to enjoy the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra's annual Christmas programs. Each year they are getting more spectacular, and this, 'The Most Wonderful Time of the Year' is the latest collection of Christmas carols and popular Christmas songs, beautifully sung by the one and only 9-Grammy Award Winner, Natalie Cole.

The Salt Lake City venue would have to be the largest concert hall in the world, (the stage proscenium is about 140 ft wide by 72 ft high) and with a choir of some 375 voices, a 100+ symphony orchestra, 200 dancers and bell ringers and an audience of 21,000 - that's right 21,000 appreciative Christmas concert-goers, this has to be the most spectacular Christmas offering I've seen in years. This is truly a magical feast for the eyes and the ears!

Beautifully directed, you'll soar above the audience, the choir, the orchestra and dancers on extended camera cranes, and with a total of some 11 cameras they capture the true Spirit of Christmas. The quality and clarity of the Technicolorful 16x9 anamorphic picture will astound you, and the 5.1 surround sound will engulf you into the heart of this spectacular venue.

Many of the stunning arrangements are by conductor Mack Wilberg, beautifully played by the orchestra that will send chills up your spine. And just wait until you hear the vast string section - wow! Natalie Cole sings 'It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year' - the heart rendering 'Grown Up Christmas List' by David Foster - 'Caroling, Caroling' - 'The Christmas Song' ('Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire') - 'Hark! The Herald Angels Sing' and 'The Holly and the Ivy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Christmas music December 2, 2012
Verified Purchase
Have always liked the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Especially important nowadays when Christians seem to be under attack. Good to hear these people who are not ashamed to step out and praise God.
The only problem I have is that some of the songs were a bit low in tempo.
All in all excellent; would recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great concert! July 23, 2011
Verified Purchase
I don't have much to add to the previous review - this is a magnificent concert featuring the great Natalie Cole and "America's Choir," the great Mormon Tabernacle Choir. I also own this on CD. The Choir is always a treat to hear, but particularly at Christmas time, and when teamed with a performer like Natalie, the results are fantastic!

3.0 out of 5 stars Ties with Archuleta for weak-voiced performance. January 30, 2014
Verified Purchase
While this concert was excellent, teen pop stars and lounge singers need not apply. Both Archuleta and Natalie Cole are outstanding performers, as long as they are not dealing with something like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square. The free concerts are performed in one of the largest venues (if not the largest) in the world, and as other artists have said, it is intimidating and at the same time, surprisingly intimate. But they are also artists with voices that can be heard in any setting. Natalie Cole, like her legendary father, is a lounge singer at heart, best heard in small venues with piano or small backup group for her songs and talent.

As such, this was one of the lessor concerts in recent years, with much better performances turned in by artists who have a strong classical vocal repertoire.

Regardless, if you are collecting the annual concerts, this is still a valuable addition to Tabernacle Choir Christmas concerts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always something impressive. January 16, 2014
Verified Purchase
We love the Mormon Tabernacle choir around here. They always have something impresssive to perform. This concert is no exception. This, along with other past performances on DVD are my young kids' (6,5,&2) go-to video on Sunday.
