Mormon Music Review: Echoes of the Sabbath: Brigham Young University
This is an anthology of BYU choruses, singing music appropriate for a Sunday. Most of it is church hymns, but not all. Young Ambassadors and a soloist sing "Let Him Heal Your Heart" and the concert choir and philharmonic orchestra perform "Death Shall Not Destroy my Comfort." The philharmonic also accompany the combined chorus in "Praise to the Lord the Almighty." Another favorite is performed by the women's chorus, "Simple Gifts." There is plenty to like in this collection.
