Did you know the Choir has a music archive that lets you find your favorite songs from specific general conferences from 2006 to 2020? Perhaps you heard a song during last October’s general conference that you keep humming but can't quite remember the title. Now you know where to go to find it. Here are some easy steps on how to use the archive.
As audiences throughout the world increase their use of digital streaming as a primary way to access music and programming, The Tabernacle Choir is focusing on digital programing to put its music at your fingertips. In addition to our traditional radio and television broadcasts, the Choir’s music and programs are streamed each week on the Choir’s social media channels and website.
Check the credits at the end of Music & the Spoken Word and for nearly forty years you would see the name Edward Payne. He isn’t a familiar sight on camera but behind the scenes as executive producer of the broadcast he pulls everything together. And he makes it look easy.
For a collective 66 years, former Tabernacle Organists John Longhurst and Clay Christiansen were at the center of the music scene on Temple Square.
