Music & the Spoken Word
95th Birthday Celebration for President Russell M. Nelson
2020 Tabernacle Choir Heritage Tour
Music & the Spoken Word Performances
Hymns are powerful vehicles for carrying the gospel of Jesus Christ to the soul of the listener and for reinforcing messages of faith, belief, solace, hope, and encouragement. They are both sermons and testimonies, communal manifestations of faith when performed as a congregation and private comforts when recalled and pondered within the heart. The hymns represented here cover a range of gospel themes and modes of expression. The musical settings are joyful, contemplative, optimistic, thoughtful, and stirring, and the discerning arrangements serve to support and confirm the messages of each hymn.
In December 2017, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Orchestra at Temple Square, and Bells on Temple Square joined with Broadway star Sutton Foster and world-renowned English actor Hugh Bonneville to celebrate both the joyful and peaceable moments of Christmas. With singers, instrumentalists, and dancers drawn from the local community, and festive flourishes from the Gabriel Trumpet Ensemble throughout the program, these concerts were a visual and musical spectacle, thrilling the combined capacity audience of over 60,000 in the Conference Center at Temple Square.
Listeners around the world have admired Wilberg as one of the leading choral conductors and arrangers but he also has a well-earned reputation as a composer of original choral music. Wilberg’s two larger choral works on this recording include The Prodigal, which retells the parable of the prodigal son found in Luke, and A Cloud of Witnesses, which weaves multiple witnessing stories of Christ’s Resurrection into a tapestry drawing on accounts from all four Gospel writers. Both of these choral works were premiered in recent years by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square—but this will be the first recording of the works. Also included are new compositions including “Children of Light,” “Tree of Life,” and a moving orchestral piece “And Wept Bitterly” plus recordings of three hymn arrangements, “All People That on Earth Do Dwell,” “How Can I Keep from Singing?” and “It Is Well with My Soul.”
This CD with the music from the 2016 Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas concert celebrates Christmas through the eyes of a child. The engaging wisdom of innocence captures our imagination through favorite songs and carols from around the world. From the 18th-century German carol “O Come, Little Children” to the French song “Il est Né” and the traditional Andalusian song “Campana Sobre Campana,” the invitation is extended to everyone to join with children in reflecting on the Christmas message. The music allows us to become children once again and partake of a joyous celebration of not only the birth of the Savior Jesus Christ, but the love of family and all mankind.
The CD includes a moving rendition of Hans Christian Andersen’s fabled story, “The Little Match Girl,” narrated by Rolando Villazón. With a backdrop of original music by Mack Wilberg, it reminds us that having the faith of a child and showing unremitting love will lift all who look heavenward for comfort and relief, no matter their circumstances.

Tanner Gift of Music. This organization was founded over 30 years ago through the combined vision of Obert C. Tanner and Gordon B. Hinckley, to share performances of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Utah Symphony, as a gift to the community.
The Utah Symphony thanks their 75th Anniversary Signature Sponsor, the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation, and Kem and Carolyn Gardner, their 75th Anniversary Mahler Cycle Sponsors, and Jack Wheatley, their Recording Sponsor, for making this recording possible.
