Carol Cymbala

Director

Carol Cymbala

Carol Cymbala was born in Chicago, IL. She is the wife of Pastor Jim Cymbala and serves as the director of the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir and is also the daughter of the church founder, the late Rev. Clair Hutchins. She has three grown children, 2 girls and a boy.

Carol began the choir with a group of 9 people in the early 1980's. Since then, the choir has grown to 250 voices. When she had trouble finding enough appropriate songs, she began writing them. Although she cannot read or write music, the Lord has given her a special gift that helps her to play from her heart through the power of the Holy Spirit. Twenty years and many albums later, recordings and live performances continue to carry the choir's sound and the Gospel's message to people all over the world. Carol has written hundreds of songs, 51 of them recorded throughout her 23 album recording history. The choir is a mixture of ethnic and economic backgrounds; there are attorneys and former street people, nurses and ex-crack addicts.

Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir : Christmas at The Brooklyn Tabernacle : 00  1 CD : Carol Cymbala :  : 093624600428  : 46004

Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir : Christmas at The Brooklyn Tabernacle

Review: A fine selection of traditional carols mixed with contemporary takes on the birth of the Christ child, Christmas at the Brooklyn Tabernacle is a festive and joyful celebration of the season. True to their roots, the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir pays homage to their ethnic diversity by including a variety of styles: the funky Caribbean influenced "First Day of the Son," the soulful R&B groove of "They Followed His Star," and the exquisitely executed classicism of "Carol of the Bells." Also included are the popular "Happy Birthday Jesus," performed by the children's choir division, and a magnificently arranged rendition of director Carol Cymbala's "You Shall Call His Name Jesus." Featured soloists include the well-loved voices of Charles Allen, Susan Cymbala, and Karen Melendez.

Songlist: O Come Emmanuel, You Shall Call His Name Jesus, First Day Of The Son, Love Came Down, Beneath His Father's Heaven, Carols, Happy Birthday Jesus, They Followed His Star, Light Of A Million Mornings, Have A Merry, Merry Christmas

Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir : Higher & Lifted Up : 00  1 CD : Carol Cymbala :  : 075678318221 : 83182

Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir : Higher & Lifted Up

Review: Higher & Lifted Up is an uplifting and celebratory album from the famed Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. Renowned for their remarkable performance skills and brilliant handling of both traditional favorites and more contemporary selections, the choir has recorded what is sure to be one of the most talked-about gospel albums. Drawn from favorite selections previously performed at Sunday morning worship service, High and Lifted Up is the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir's first studio album in more than a decade. Akin to the Brooklyn Tabernacle singers' Songs from the Altar, this is an elegantly scored collection that remains firmly focused on the choir's trademark praise and worship bent. However, while it begins with the relatively uncomplicated "Total Praise," High and Lifted Up, unlike Songs, is lyrically complex, including the words of Psalm 150 and "Battle Hymn of the Republic." Skillfully executed multipart harmonies and swelling strains of strings make the title cut, the Celtic-tinged "Father We Adore Thee," and closer "God of All Gods" crowning achievements.

Songlist: Total Praise, Psalm 150 (Praise Ye The Lord), My Help (Cometh From The Lord), We Are United, Battle Hymn Of The Republic, Father We Adore Thee, High And Lifted Up, Blessed Be The Lord, So You Would Know, God Of All Gods
