Movie Reviews

A Stunning Performance
Music Man | Utah, USA | 09/04/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is an almost complete recording of of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's Chistmas Concert from Dec 2003. I went on the first night and was so taken by the performances that I returned for the next evenings performance and the Sunday morning shortened version for their Music and The SPoken Word Broadcast.

All I can say is that this is a MUST HAVE DVD for the Christmas Season. Bryn Terfel and Frederica Von Stade were the guest soloists with the choir, and Bryn Terfel was simply stunning. A highlight of the concert (although it is difficult to choose) is when Mr. Terfel sang SUO GAN. It was breathtakingly beautiful. In fact the person who was with me at the concert cried upon hearing it. The Choir also does a traditional African folk song which must be seen to be believed. It was just one of those amazing experiences.

An added treat is the brief interviews with Bryn Terfel, Frederica Von Stade, and Craig Jessop and Mack Wilberg. It is refreshing to hear world class artists speak not only about music, but of their personal feelings regarding Christmas itself, and about performing this wonderful program. It left me even more impressed with the performers than before (if that is possible)

I was fortunate to purchase this item at its pre release discounted price, but it is easily worth the cost which is now being asked.

Buy this disk you wont be disappointed.

A Genuinely Great Christmas Concert
R. W. Rasband | Heber City, UT | 01/05/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I personally attended one of the dates of this concert in December 2003 and was stunned by how pleasureable it was. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir showed excellent taste by inviting two world-class singers like Terfel and Von Stade to appear with them. Not only does Terfel have a voice that can melt steel, but he is enormously charming. At one point during the show he proudly displayed the Welsh flag he has sewn into the lining of his overcoat. The choir was founded long ago with help from singers from Wales who had emigrated to Utah, so it seemed fitting that Terfel was there. If you love classical Christmas music, you shouldn't miss this DVD."
Wonderful widescreen performance!

"The video is great and the audio quality is awesome.
Guest singers are super.
Of course the choir is spectacular as always and the orchestra is top notch too.
I especially liked hearing the less familiar Christmas songs and new arrangements not so often heard.
The setting is really beautiful with all the flowers and color.
I just love this DVD!"
