"Special care went into choosing each of the songs for this new album," said Mack Wilberg, music director for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. "We have enjoyed the privilege of collaborating with some of the finest musical talents that are known the world over - not only in the sacred choral repertory for which the Choir is renowned - but in a diverse range of styles and genres, from rock and roll, pop, and Broadway, to classical vocal and instrumental. This album highlights some of the most unforgettable musical moments in the recent history of the Choir, featuring guest artists that are considered dear friends, and we couldn't be more pleased with the final outcome."
