Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
Culled from three live Sunday services at the famous Brooklyn Tabernacle, the Grammy-nominated Favorite Song of All features some of the choir's most cherished and oft-sung hymns. As with others in their series of live recordings, Favorite Song includes applause, individual testimony, and rousing congregational participation, as in "God Is Moving by His Spirit." Buoyed by remarkably strong and regularly featured soloists (Robin Giles, Charles Allen, Cynthia Greene), the choir marries elements of traditional black gospel with contemporary Christian choral arrangements, typified by the elegant vocal and instrumental build of "Use Me." "He'll Welcome Me" and "Heaven Medley," both featuring the belt of gospel diva Pamela Pettway, and the rhythmic pop-spiritual "Field of Souls" are standouts, as is the stunning a cappella rendition of the Hebrew "Hevenu Shalom Alechem." --Paige La Grone

CD Reviews

A Powerhouse Recording . . .
L. Mountford | Bellingham, WA United States | 12/03/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is truly one of the better large gospel choral groups recording today. Their music is an original blend of traditional black gospel with contemporary Christian sounds. The soloists are particularly strong in this recording.As a choir director myself, I'm always amazed at the precision this group achieves in diction and rhythm. I usually have trouble getting my 20-voice group to sing together -- getting a group of 250+ singers to do the same thing at the same time is truly an accomplishment!Of particular note are the cuts "Favorite Song of All," "Field of Souls," and my personal favorite "Order My Steps." The soloists are spectacular -- an even more impressive accomplishment when you consider that this entire CD put together from recordings of three Sunday services at the Brooklyn Tabernacle.If you're looking for a prime example of the best of current gospel singing, look no further."

"A FAN FROM HEMET, CA. CONGRADULATIONS ON THIS WONDERFUL CD. YOU HAVE DONE IT AGAIN. THIS IS MOST PROBABLY THE BEST CHOIR IN THE U.S IF YOU DON'T FEEL LIFTED, AND INSPIRED THERE IS NOTHING IN THIS WORLD THAT WILL MOVE YOU. THIS CHOIR SINGS SO FROM THE HEART, AND SOUL. THE CHOIR, UNDER THE DIRECTION OF CAROL CYMBALA DEMONSTRATES CLEARLY THAT MUSIC CAN BE MORE THAN WORDS, AND NOTES, BUT RATHER AN EXPERIENCE THAT CAN LEAD ONE INTO THE PRESENCE OF GOD....WHAT A TRULY MAGNIFICENT EXPERIENCE...THANK YOU SO MUCH."
