Marvelous Monday & Review {He is Risen CD}

Welcome to
"Marvelous Monday & Review."
Spring is here and Easter is coming up.  I love this time of year when there is sunshine and beautiful flowers. What do you love about the Spring? Are you ready for Easter? Do you put in special gifts in your Easter baskets to remind you of Jesus?
Well, I have the perfect gift that you can give to a friend, family member, neighbor, etc. I was privileged to review a beautiful and peaceful cd called,
He is Risen
from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir
Featuring heartwarming and uplifting hymns like Christ the Lord Is Risen Today, When I Survey the Wondrous Cross, and He is Risen, your Easter holiday will be filled with true remembrance and thankfulness for Christ, His life and the love He shows for each of God's Children.

About the Author:

The 360 members of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir represent men and women from many different backgrounds and professions and range in age from 25 to 60. They reflect a medley of unique lives and experiences and are brought together by their love for singing and their faith. Their incomparable voices are the common chord that unites to form the choral group known all over the world as the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir originated in the mid-19th century in Salt Lake City. As the Latter-day Saints moved west, Church President Brigham Young included musicians among members of the advance parties. Consequently, a small choir first sang for a conference of the Church in the Salt Lake Valley on August 22, 1847, just 29 days after the first group arrived. The origins of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir may be found in the desire and commitment of early converts to include appropriate music in both sacred and secular events.
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has appeared at 13 world’s fairs and expositions, performed at the inaugurations of five U.S. presidents, and sung for numerous worldwide telecasts and special events. Five of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s recordings have achieved “gold record” and two have achieved “platinum record” status. The most popular was the Grammy-Award-winning 1959 release of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” with the Philadelphia Orchestra.
In my opinion:
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir is pretty amazing. They bring peace into my life and I'm pretty sure I could listen to them all day. When I listen to them, I feel like I'm home. He is Risen was a beautiful cd, however, there were only six songs. I guess I wanted more. Good thing, they have a lot of cds. My favorite songs were #4 Jesus has Risen and #5 He is Risen. Overall, I enjoyed listening to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's songs and hymns of Easter. The songs definitely filled me with the spirit and I felt uplifted as I listened to the words. Let us remember Christ always and be filled with true gratitude this Easter season.
