BYU Men's Chorus

Group.

The Brigham Young University Men's Chorus is thought to be the largest collegiate male choral organization in the country. Founded in 1958, it has steadily grown to its present membership of 190 voices, with over 400 annually auditioning for the ensemble. As a result of its versatile literature and engaging performance style, the BYU Men's Chorus has captured the admiration of audiences throughout the Western United States and beyond. Each year the choir includes a diverse and unique representation of the university community. Choir members originate not only from the United States and Canada, but from countries throughout the world. Of the 190 members only 18 are music majors with the remainder drawn from every college and department of the university. Over 130 members of the chorus have served LDS missions throughout the world, and a large number are planning to serve after their 19th birthdays.

BYU Men's Chorus : Praise Him : 00  1 CD : Rosalind Hall : 

BYU Men's Chorus : Praise Him

Review: The BYU Men's Chorus' first two excellent releases, "Awake My Soul" and "Shout with Glory" whetted our appetite, and that of many fans, for their 3rd. For the long-awaited "Praise Him," conductor Rosalind Hall has assembled an exciting, heartfelt mix of religious texts with a nice set of folk and traditional songs to finish the program. 19 songs with some organ, horns, strings and percussion accompaniment. Favorites are the magnificent "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God," "Fight The Good Fight With All Thy Might," the tender "More Holiness Give Me," "Awake My Sons, Awake," the Title Tune, Arthur Sullivan's "The Long Day Closes," "Praise My Soul," the beautiful hymn "Guide Us, O Thou Great Jehovah," and folksongs "Kumbayah," "Shenandoah," "Joshua Fit the Battle of Jerico," "Danny Boy" and "Down in the Valley." The bright, energetic, richly melodic sound of the BYU Men's Chorus contributes to its growing reputation as one of the premiere choral programs in the United States.

Songlist: A Mighty Fortress Is Our God, Fight The Good Fight With All Thy Might, Who Is He In Yonder Stall?, More Holiness Give Me, Awake, My Sons, Awake, Thou Art God, Praise Him, Isaiah 44.3, The Long Day Closes, Personent Hodie, Praise My Soul, Guide Us, O Thou Great Jehovah, Our Father, Kwmbayah, Shenandoah, Joshua Fit De Battle Of Jericho, Danny Boy, Polly Wolly Doodle, Down In The Valley
