I'm not religious, but I just love this choir! Their conductor should be very proud getting them all to sing together so well! And they are the only choir I want to hear at Christmas time, no-one else does it better IMO.
Really? You know them? I first found them online about 8 or 9 years ago - maybe longer. My internet was slow for nearly two weeks but it's speeded up enough to go to youtube and listen to them. Great stuff. I mean I love pop and rock and all that, but choral music is something else!
I do know members of the Choir. They are fabulous individuals.
Let me tell you of their qualifications. Not only does vocal talent help, but they must prove and adhere to the highest standards of personal living. Not financially, but spiritually and cleanliness. They must satisfy a leader that they are worthy to enter even our most holy temples. This requires following a code of health and conduct that is second to none.
Think of that the next time you hear them. When they sing, they sing with absolute purity of heart and intent - AND they are worthy to sing such music.
They are amazing aren't they! If you ever want to hear something of that kind - pick the closest Mormon Temple at Christmas time - choirs galore. Here in NZ this past Christmas the Primary Choir had about 360 people watching and it was wonderful
My parents, when I was growing up, always played their Christmas records. I love their Hallelujah Chorus. I like playing it really loud and belting it with them. Luckily the player is so loud, people really can't hear me, only the wonderful music.
