Listen to These Christmas Songs Composed by Mack Wilberg
The director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Mack Wilberg, is known around the world for his compositions and arrangements. His works are respected and appreciated by the choral community as well as the casual listener. Wilberg once said, “I work very hard to stimulate and keep people’s attention. Music ought to be an enjoyable journey for the listener.”
During an interview with the soloists from the Messiah segments of the 2015 Christmas concert, Tyler Simpson (Bass) recalled the frequency of seeing Mack Wilbergs name on pieces of music saying, “For years, singing in church choirs, and things like this, how many times have I seen over to the side, ‘arranged by Mack Wilberg.’”
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s YouTube channel reached a milestone of 100 million views in 2017. There are thousands of videos on the channel, including over 100 Christmas videos. In addition to the Christmas songs that are arranged by Mack Wilberg, a number of them are also written by him.
