"This CD is taken from two sessions the Choir recorded in 1960 and 1969, the earlier session (thirteen of the thirty tracks) being sung accompanied by the Philidelphia Brass Ensemble, and the latter session carried by the Tabernacle organ alone. The CD is generously filled out to 74 minutes, with 30 tracks crammed into the running time. It's intriguing to hear the finesse the choir has achieved in the last 40 years; if you compare this recording with their latest: "A Tabernacle Christmas," the improvement in the latter recording is dramatic. The recent creation of the Orchestra at Temple Square has been a much-admired improvement, but this recording has much to recommend it, including fervent readings of "Onward Christian Soldiers," the somber arrangement of "Abide With Me" and many others. Overall, a stolid, sincere recording which pales somewhat compared to the brilliant recent releases from this world-class choir."
Great "Best of" collection.

"I am a firm believer in "Best of" collections, since you get the wheat seperated from the chaff. This collection hits the mark, sicne it has general Christian music, along with Saint-specific songs of the Restoration.It a recompilation of analogue-recorded music, so the sound is merely hi-fi and not hi-tech. But we are after the sould of music, not the technicality."

"Steve Cumming played this version of God Be With You Till We Meet Again on his last broadcast show for classical WRR radio in Dallas. If there was a dry eye in the listening audience, I would be surprised. In addition to the song he chose, this recording has all of your favorites performed with beauty and majesty."
