The Gospel Restored: An Inspiring Journey Through Words and Music [CD] - Robert Cundick


The Restoration included three pivotal events: Joseph Smith’s First Vision, the subsequent translation of the Book of Mormon, and the exodus to Utah. Composer and former Mormon Tabernacle Choir organist Robert Cundick’s composition of three musical works representing these happenings convey both meaning and emotion to our souls through eloquent words and music.

Performers on this CD include the BYU Singers, Utah Chamber Artists, the Ricks College (now BYU-Idaho) A Cappella Choir, Concert Chorale, and Symphony Orchestra, as well as soloists Shane Warby, baritone, Michael Belnap, tenor, and Julie Bevan, cello. CD booklet includes full lyric text.
