Musical Feasts from Campus

BYU’s record label, Tantara, produces recordings of faculty artists, premier touring ensembles, and historically significant serious LDS works. Here are four of Tantara’s recent, best-selling offerings. 

Songs of Praise and Remembrance (1999; CD $15.95, VHS $19.95, audiocassette $10.95)
In the tradition of the award-winning holiday specials A Celebration of Christmas and A Thanksgiving of American Folk Hymns comes Songs of Praise and Remembrance: A Memorial Day Celebration. Taped before a live audience, the program features four BYU choirs (including some 600 singers and 80 instrumentalists) performing songs and hymns which celebrate life and mourn its untimely loss.

Four American Sonatas for French Horn (1999; CD $15.95)
Laurence M. Lowe, associate professor of music, is a “first-call” musician for film score recordings and concert orchestras, and his talent shines in this collection. The CD includes the premier recording of a demanding new sonata by favorite LDS composer Crawford Gates.

Songs of the Soul (1999; CD $15.95)
With all the sensitivity and musical precision that made We Sing of Christ so popular, director Ronald J. Staheli and the University Singers have created another masterpiece. “Behold the Wounds in Jesus’ Hands” was featured in a recent LDS general conference.

All Creatures of our God and King (1998; CD $15.95)

With this farewell CD as a member of the music faculty and director of BYU’s Concert Choir, Mack Wilberg serves up a spiritually rewarding and musically memorable collection of hymns and anthems. This album received a Pearl Award from the Faith-Centered Music Association and sold out two runs prior to its formal release.
