Just released in time for Easter is the new Mormon Tabernacle Choir CD, "He Is Risen." On that recording are six Easter anthems from various eras. Each of these tracks is also available for digital download from Itunes or Deseret Book.com. We had a glorious experience preparing for and recording these wonderful hymns and choral masterpieces. Offered are two arrangements by Mack Wilberg "He Is Risen" and "Christ the Lord Is Risen Today" with full orchestra, organ and choir, "In the Garden" and "Jesus Has Risen" arranged by Ryan Murphy, "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross," and "Worthy Is the Lamb" from Messiah by Handel.
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir is also preparing to perform the entire oratorio Messiah by George Frideric Handel on an Easter Concert, April 18th and 19th, 2014 on Temple Square. Tickets become available on March 11th.
