There have been so many Christmas albums over the years, when I saw this I thought 'Oh no, not another one?' Then I looked at the track titles and saw that this was something different. Among the traditional carols there were many unfamiliar titles (I say this as a foreigner - some may be better known in the USA than in Australia). I decided to buy the SACD version of this release. What a revelation! Where do I start?

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir is famous for producing very enjoyable choral recordings, usually with a religious theme, but frankly, on an international scale, they do not rate with the best (compare them with some of the better UK symphonic choirs, which is how the Tabernacle choir must be categorized, to see what I mean). But on this album, they have placed themselves well and truly in the international arena. Every aspect of their singing is, to me, perfect - diction, phrasing, musical expression, ensemble, and of greatest importance, a total involvement with and perfect expression of the words and the music. They don't sing about Santa Claus; they sing about the true meaning of Christmas, and mean it. And you really hear how well they sing in the few 'a capella' sections - musical moments that are unsurpassed.

Then there are the arrangements. These express everything from the implicit grandeur of God coming down to earth, through to the greatest tenderness of the simplicity of his birth as Jesus. All the orchestrations and choral arrangements are completely fresh and unhackneyed, ranging from the most exquisite harmonies through to extraordinarily bold key changes - the people who did these arrangements are amongst the best in the business.

Then there is the program.

What a step forward for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir! Under the hand of their relatively new conductor, Dr. Craig Jessop, their choral technique really shines on this album. Made up entirely of volunteers, earlier recordings have often showed a lack of polish and precision in the singing, but this new recording demonstrates just how world-class the current choir is. And the spirit and enthusiasm they have always conveyed is stronger than ever.
Dr. Mack Wilberg's settings (10 of the 15 tracks) clearly defend his title as one of America's greatest living choral arrangers. Especially wonderful is the lesser-known carol, "What Shall We Give to the Babe in the Manger." Wilberg's stunning reharmonization and sensitive orchestration give the song tremendous power and emotion.
The album is a good balance of traditional favorites and more obscure songs, of energetic show-stoppers and tenderly restrained reflections. The sound quality is state-of-the-art.
In a time when I so often sense a lack of real spirituality or humility or genuine expression from other classical recordings, this one seems to me to be a very real effort to worship through music. How I wish that I could find more albums like this.

I've had a bootleg tape of the concert from which this CD was created and am very excited to finally have an excellent quality recording of an excellent collection of Christmas music. It is past time for the mass audience to become acquainted with the arrangements of Mack Wilberg and Barlow Bradford.
The album is a good combination of the well-known/expected, and lesser-known/refreshing. For example, Angels from the Realms of Glory, a somewhat lesser-known text, is set to the tune of the familiar Angels We Have Heard on High, and Wilberg's arrangement makes it all new and launches the Glory in Excelsis Deo refrain to heights not far from that star and those angels over Bethlehem.

This was the first album the choir did with Mac Wilburg arranging and it shows. It is so much better than all previous Christmas albums they produced. Prior to this their Christmas music is very traditional, but fairly boring. This album has glorious arrangements in an entirely different class. "Joy to the World" is phenomenal, as is "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing." "The First Noel" and "Angels from the Realms of Glory" are deeply moving and incredibly powerful. This album was produced before the choir started doing albums with soloists, which also gives it a major advantage over later albums. The only soloist-collaboration they've done that's worth owning in its entirety is "Spirit of the Season," which they did with Sissel. Those soloists are usually not as nice to listen to as just the choir. So if you enjoy the choir, and you enjoy beautiful and powerful arrangements of Christmas music that will touch the heart, this is your album! Buy it immediately!

As a boy born and raised in Utah by a Mormon family, I often heard the Mormon Tabernacle Choir on television. Unfortunately, I didn't appreciate it at the time. Half a century later, I played this music CD, and, although it was recorded in the year 2000, it made me feel as if it were the 'Sixties again.

Telarc SACD, it just does not get much better. This company did not make a bad SACD, Telarc was the very best of the best along with Reference Recordings and FIM a a few others, that set the standard for audiophile sound, as well as stellar performances!
