5.0 out of 5 stars Peaceful spiritual music April 29, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the third brand new recording that the Mormon Tabernacle Choir has recorded on their own label. Planned as a direct follow up to their best-selling "Consider The Lilies" CD, "Peace Like A River" follows a very similar program of song selection and arrangements, with a sprinkling of spirituals, pieces by John Rutter, newly-arranged songs by Mack Wilberg, and much more. It's a lovely, peaceful CD for listening anytime you want a break from the world. Here's the track list:
1 Sweet Peace
Music: English Folk Song
Text: David Warner
Arrangement: Mack Wilberg 2:31
2 Be Still, My Soul
Music: Jean Sibelius
Text: Katharina von Schlegel (trans. Jane Borthwick)
Arrangement: Mack Wilberg 4:52
3 Peace Like a River
Music: African-American Spiritual
Arrangement: Mack Wilberg 4:31
4 All Things Bright and Beautiful
Music: John Rutter
Text: Mrs. C. F. Alexander 2:45
5 The Lord Is My Shepherd
Music: Thomas Koschat
Text: James Montgomery
Arrangement: Mack Wilberg 4:33
6 This Is My Father's World
Music: Trad. English Melody (adapt. Franklin L. Sheppard)
Text: Maltbie D. Babcock
Arrangement: Mack Wilberg 3:24
7 Wayfarin' Stranger
Music: American Folk Hymn
Arrangement: Mack Wilberg 4:12
8 Lord, Make Me an Instrument of Thy Peace

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent! February 2, 2005
By John
Format:Audio CD
Peace Like a River truly is a peaceful recording. The music is ecumenical in its religous audience and is superb in performance, sound quality, and value. This choir has undergone an exquisite transformation over the past 75 years, and has been steadily climbing Billboard's Top 100 charts in Classical, Classical Crossover, and Christian recordings. The music is superb, even non-classical lovers (like myself) will enjoy the sublime beauty of the recording. A must buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Peace Like A River" July 11, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Tabernacle Choir has another hit!! This is just a wonderful CD - amazing sound. Wilburg's arrangements and Jessop's energetic and demanding directing make this a "must have" album. How can this choir get any better???

5.0 out of 5 stars every good adjective August 5, 2005
By holly
Format:Audio CD
This album is all beauty and solace. The singing is pristine, the arrangements lush and often stirring--never saccharine. As with the previous reviewer, my first listing of "Peace Like a River" brought me to tears (especially "Peace Like a River," the sopranos in "Swing Low," and the bagpipes in "Thou Gracious God"). Buy this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars This CD Deserves SIX Stars! November 4, 2005
By Dan
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
However, the rating scale has a limit of five. I own over 700 CDs of virtually every type of music. Peace Like A River belongs in a class by itself! I've never written a review before but, after listening to this STUNNING performance by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, I feel compelled to share my praise with that of the five other reviewers. If I were limited to one word, I would use the word "SUPERB" to describe this beautiful and moving CD. SIX stars for Peace Like a River! BRAVO!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! May 28, 2005
By Paul
Format:Audio CD
The perfect recording to help you recover from a long, hard day. Showcasing the MTC's "new" sound in contemporary choral arrangements with its own orchestra and conductor, "Peace Like a River" brought tears to my eyes in selection after selection during my first listen -- and I'm not normally an emotional person! The title song together with "Deep River," "Swing Low" and "Be Still My Soul" are alone worth the cost of the recording. Get this one!

3.0 out of 5 stars A few bright spots, but also some disappointments January 18, 2007
Format:Audio CD
It Is Well With My Soul is one of my favorite-favorites and that is the main reason why I bought the CD; it turned out to be a huge let down on this album, they rearranged it so much that I almost didn't recognize it. Be Still My Soul is another reason why I bought it and it's good, but not great. Swing Low Sweet Chariot is where it starts to get good. The last two songs "Thou Gracious God, Whose Mercy Lends"

and "Come, Let Us Anew" are very good reasons to buy this CD, they each have truely powerful passages and make the CD worth having. The Mormon Tabernacle Choirs 2006 release entitled Then Sings My Soul is by far the best that I've heard from them.

5.0 out of 5 stars peace January 21, 2011
By joy
Format:Audio CD
While I was recovering from a horrible tragedy I was given this CD from a friend. I listened to it just about every hour I was awake for months. It really brought me peace and helped me to heal. I have since used it as a gift to others that are suffering.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs better tenor and baritone voice balance!
Song choices were ok, and I felt the choir was not balanced in it's presentation. The soprano voices overwhelmed all others, therefore you get a CD that sometimes becomes difficult... Read more
