5.0 out of 5 stars Joseph A Nashville Tribute to the Prophet, April 11, 2007
I am not Christian and, subsequently not a member of the LDS Church. As I listened to this remarkable work, the narration and the outstanding songs and singers, I was frequently moved and, yes, I wept. The songs feature people and events in LDS history. They are about spirituality, endurance, courage, suffering, loss, and triumph. A person does not have to be LDS to appreciate and identify with the sentiments in the narration and music. This was truly a labor of love.
5.0 out of 5 stars what an awesome cd!, April 2, 2007
this is a fantastic cd--my kids go around singing these songs all the time. In particular--the candle, and the song about Emma Smith. Excellent music!
5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice, October 23, 2008
I have listened to this CD over and over. It's like listening to a nice theatrical version of a tribute to the prophet Joseph Smith. It's uplifting and really touches the heart.
I didn't like Trek very much, but I think that's because I don't have any mormon pioneers in my family (I AM the pioneer -- I'm the first one to join the church.)
I highly recommend this CD. In fact, I bought several to give as Christmas gifts this year.
