How exciting is this- to have four of the best Mormon Tabernacle Choir CD's together in one bundle?  It's called the Missionary Collection and I have to say that it is perfect to send off to a missionary.  I should know, I have one.  After listening and loving these CD's, I sent them off to England so my son could enjoy them as well.  His mission rules limit him to listening to only the hymns and Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the one album he took with him is being well used.  He was so excited to hear I was sending him more music- a greater variety.

"This is the Christ" is my favorite CD of the four with Teach Me To Walk in the Light coming in a close second.  I have such emotional connections to so many of these songs.  They fill my heart with peace and comfort.  My family and I listened to one of these CD's in the car on the way to a Sunday meeting of more distance and I asked everyone to describe in one word the music they were hearing.  Calming, peaceful, and gentle were some of the words.

I, personally, am so grateful for music.  This isn't the music I always listen to but it's where I go if my soul is in need of peace and comfort.  It is a good, grounding reminder of what I believe and who I am.

My thanks to Deseret Book for allowing me to listen to and review these CD's for them.  They are beautiful and perfect not only for my missionary but for me as well.  

Purchase this CD collection at Deseret Book or Amazon.
