Need to get in the holiday spirit? Looking for a gift for someone in your family who loves the classic Christmas music?
I’m sitting and watching the DVD of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s 2012 Christmas Concert, Home for the Holidays and it is beautiful! I’m thinking that this would be lovely to take to a nursing home where someone couldn’t get out to a Christmas Concert. There is nothing else like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the quality of this DVD matches the quality of their performances. It is warm, rich, and moving.
As seen and heard by more than 80,000 people in the LDS Conference Center, Home for the Holidays is the live recording of The Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s 2012 Christmas concert.
This year’s release features internationally acclaimed TV personality Tom Brokawand Tony Award–winning Les Miserables tenor Alfie Boe.
The Choir also welcomed surprise-guest Gail “Hal” Halvorsen, the renowned Candy Bomber of World War II. Halvorsen started by giving a few treats to children watching the planes from outside the Tempelhof base. Wanting to give more, he promised to drop more candy from his plane the next day. Halvorsen’s initiative drew the attention of the operation’s commanding officer, Lieutenant General William H. Tunner, who approved of it and ordered it expanded into Operation Little Vittles. A wave of public support led to donations which enabled Halvorsen and his crew to drop 850 pounds of candy.
Together with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square, these three special guests delivered an unprecedented excitement to the stage that brought all in attendance to their feet more than once during the night.
Hailed as the performance that “may have topped them all” (Catherine Reese Newton, The Salt Lake Tribune).
