CD Review: The Missionary Collection

I have been sick as a dog, flat in my bed for the past couple of days, so my review this week will be of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's new release, The Missionary Collection.

This release is four albums in one collection, "Praise to the Man, Called to Serve, Teach Me to Walk in the Light, and This is the Christ."  

To tell you the truth, I've needed some uplifting lately.  This collection really transports me to somewhere beautiful and peaceful.  The rich voices are so soothing, yet stirring at the same time. I loved every song and that's saying something!  There are songs for every mood and for every age, whether you are a missionary or not.  Member or not. So incredibly beautiful.  

Here is the official press release:

SALT LAKE CITY (May 13, 2014) – The world-renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir will release The Missionary Collection today, featuring four best-selling albums in one set.

The albums Praise to the Man, Called to Serve, Teach Me to Walk in the Light and This is the Christ feature arrangements from the 360-member choir that uplift and inspire missionaries at home and abroad, of any age and of any calling.

Featured tracks in the four-disc set include Joseph Smith’s First Prayer, The Spirit of God, If the Savior Stood beside Me and I Believe in Christ.

The Missionary Collection has a list price of $39.98 and is available at Deseret Book, iTunes, and other select retailers.

Thanks, Debra! I'd never heard it called MTC music, but that title really fits! :)
