Notes and Editorial Reviews

Meeting of Titans: America’s best-loved choir meets the world’s favourite bass-baritone: Bryn Terfel and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir join forces in an inspiring survey of classical, spiritual, Welsh and American folk songs.
The lead track, the eponymous Homeward Bound, is a stunning emotional show stopper. Recorded in Salt Lake City in May 2013, this “event” record is set to thrill classical audiences on both sides of the Atlantic – and beyond.
Welsh bass-bartione powerhouse Bryn Terfel unites with the historic Mormon Tabernacle Choir (MTC) Known as “America’s Choir”, and currently the best-selling classical act in the US, this extraordinary American musical institution was founded 166 years ago by American Pioneers,
Read more migrating at the time from the Midwest to Salt Lake Valley.
Many of the original Pioneers included Mormons hailing from Wales – a connection that Bryn makes through music and song on this popular vocal and choral program Features spectacular new arrangements from the pen of the award-winning MTC Musical Director Mack Wilberg.
Also features special guests Tamara Mumford and Sissel Kyrkjebø.
Repertoire drawn from American spirituals, Welsh favourites, sacred arias, popular hymns and the world of musicals.
