BYU Concert Choir

Director: Rosalind Hall

 BYU Concert Choir

Mixed Choral Chorus from UT, United States.

Brigham Young University Concert Choir comprises 100 advanced singers who are committed to a challenging choral experience. This very select ensemble has acquired an outstanding reputation for its captivating performances of a wide variety of repertoire taken from the great choral literature, encompassing many different styles and genres.

Although the Concert Choir does not generally tour, they have a rigorous performance schedule both on and off campus, which requires substantial dedication and stamina. All programs, which usually contain pieces in several different languages, are performed from memory. Although the huge variety and quantity of literature demands enormous flexibility and commitment, the rewards in terms of both educational and musical experience are rich and plentiful.

BYU Concert Choir : Beautiful River

Review: Rosalind Hall, director of both the oft-showcased mixed-voice BYU Concert Choir and the popular Men's Chorus, leads the Choir in their 2nd recording, their debut the excellent "All Creatures of Our God and King." 18 songs, some favorites are the title tune, Moses Hogan's dynamic arrangement of "I Gotta Home Ina Dat Rock," 5 a cappella Shaker Songs, "Come to Zion," "Love is Little," "Dismission of Great I," "We Must Be Meek," and "Lay Me Low;" "Five Hebrew Love Songs," the Robert Shaw-arranged "I Will Arise" and the haunting "Irish Blessing." Some light accompaniment. "Beautiful River" proves to us that the BYUCC is ready to take its place as one of the best mixed choirs in the world!

BYU Concert Choir : All Creatures Of Our God & King : 00  1 CD : Mack Wilberg  :  : JCO26

BYU Concert Choir : All Creatures Of Our God & King

Review: Organized in 1984 under the direction of Mack Wilberg, the 90-voice BYUCC is one of two highly select mixed choral ensembles that continue a long choral singing tradition at the University. The group has appeared in concert at national ACDA and MTNA conventions and with the Utah Symphony. On "All Creatures" the group's full, rich, flawless sound is featured on a collection of 12 symphonically accompanied, mostly traditional Christian hymns and songs of praise. The title tune, "The Lord Is My Shepherd," John Gardner's "Brightest and Best of the Sons of the Morning," "Be Still My Soul" and "Jesus, Once of Humble Birth" are particularly fine. Mack Wilberg's skills as an arranger are evident on four songs, and his own compositions, "Jesu, the Very Thought Is Sweet," and "Fantasia on Early Latter-day Saint Hymns," are wonderful. Extensive liner notes with all lyrics. An impressive, inspirational CD!

Songlist: All Creatures of Our God and king, The Lord is My Shepherd, Jesu, The Very Thought Is Sweet, Brightest and Best of the Sons of the Morning, God Is Seen, My Shepherd Will Supply My Need, All Things Bright and Beautiful, Jesus, Once of Humble Birth, Be Still, My Soul, Death Shall Not Destroy my Comfort, Abide With Me, 'Tis Eventide, Fantasia on Early Latter-day Saint Hymns
