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

Text: David Warner
Arrangement: Mack Wilberg 2:31
2 Be Still, My Soul

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!

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???

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.

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!!!

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!

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.

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.
