Awake My Soul: Sacred Hymns and Anthems [CD] - BYU Men's Chorus

The success of Shout with Glory! created a great demand for more music from the BYU Men's Chorus, and Awake My Soul was the welcome follow-up. A collection of 14 favorite hymns performed under the baton of then conductor Mack Wilberg (now the director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir), Awake My Soul was recorded at Brigham Young University and features the indomitable spirit of the BYU Men's Chorus, which is said to be one of the largest and finest of its kind in the nation. A new digitally remastered release from Tantara Records, Awake My Soul was previously released as a Deseret Book Company album.
