Now this is priceless! In a documentary titled Temple Square, produced by Salt Lake City PBS station KUED, Anna Joy Watts details how her last minute plans to attend a session of General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints led to a once in a lifetime experience.
George Frideric Handel’s “Hallelujah” chorus is one of the most popular and widely recognizable pieces of classical music. It is known by adults and children alike for its easy-to-recite lyrics and hummable melody.
Twice a year in April and October, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints holds its general conference to address spiritual topics. Although the conferences take place in Salt Lake City, Utah, and are attended by Church members, community representatives, and other guests, people around the world have the ability to watch the conference sessions online or via satellite.
Did you love when the Choir performed “God Bless Our Prophet Dear,” “Faith in Every Footstep,” “Consider the Lilies,” or “If the Savior Stood Beside Me” during the October General Conference? Then you’ll love our Sacred Music Library!
For over 86 years, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir has broadcast Music & the Spoken Word each week, providing choral music and messages to uplift and inspire audiences around the world. The first broadcast of Music & the Spoken Word on July 15, 1929 was transmitted using a single microphone to only 30 radio stations. Through the years, as technology improved and changed, the weekly audience for the Choir grew to include appreciative followers who tuned in to their local radio or television station. Since the Choir launched its own YouTube channel in 2012, larger world-wide audiences have been able to access Music & the Spoken Word through Internet streaming of the broadcast. Each week the Choir’s website links to the broadcast live stream for audiences around the world to join us.
