The last track is superb.
(5 out of 5 stars)
"The strength of this CD is the last track, an unusual arrangement of "Come, Come, Ye Saints." Most of the hymn's appeal has always been its historical context; I've often found it rather plain. This arrangement, though, turns it into a true work of art. It undertakes to replicate the pioneer odyssey, with all its griefs and triumphs, through a subtle alternation within verses of minor and major keys. My one criticism might be that the minor-key "And should we die" passage is a little strong, with the male voices drowning everything else out.There are some other solid performances on this album. The Mack Wilberg arrangements are especially well-developed, although I actually prefer the versions performed by the composer's own BYU Concert Choir and Men's Chorus."
