Music Review: Mormon Tabernacle Choir: Called to Serve
Called to Serve: Craig Jessop and Mack Willberg conductors, 2008. Miranda bought this as part of a four-pack from the distribution center of music for missionaries. This set has some very exciting music. I love "Redeemer of Israel" with its brass fanfare. it is just so exciting. The Mack Wallberg arrangement of "I Believe in Christ" is also fantastic the way the cords change and the choir gets broader in the last couple verses. It creates a real emotional reaction to the music. The men sing, "Ye Elders of Israel." "High on a Mountain Top" also has the brass fanfare. "Come, Come Ye Saints" has always been one of my favorite, and this version has lots of energy. "The Spirit of God Like Fire Is Burning" is the final number of this set. This song is also very well done. This C.D. is very moving and uplifting. A god C.D. for any missionary.
