New Easter Video - Mormon Tabernacle Choir: He Is Risen!

The world renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir, music ambassadors of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, have released a beautiful new video in celebration of the life and Resurrection of Jesus Christ and just in time for Easter: He is Risen!

From the Mormon Newsroom

The video features the choir and Orchestra at Temple Square performing in the Tabernacle and includes portions of Church-produced Bible videos that portray Christ’s life. Release of the video coincides with the debut of the choir’s new He Is Risen CD, which includes a selection of songs commemorating the Easter story. The video can also be viewed on the Choir’s YouTube channel and website. 

To further celebrate the Easter season, the choir and orchestra will perform Handel’s Messiah on 18-19 April 2014 at Temple Square to coincide with Good Friday. The tickets went quickly for the beloved oratorio, but there will be additional opportunities to hear the music from anywhere in the world. 


The Choir will stream the performance live Friday, 18 April, beginning at 7:30 p.m. MDT at On-demand video will also be available after the concert on the choir’s website and YouTube channel through the Easter weekend. 

This is the first time in 10 years that the full choir and orchestra have presented the Easter concert and perhaps the first time ever that the choir has publicly performed Messiah, most often associated with Christmas, in its entirety. Messiah was originally an Easter offering when it debuted in Dublin in 1742. It tells the story of Christ’s life from His birth to His death and Resurrection. The choir is working on a full recording of Messiah this year, with plans to release the album in 2015.

  1. Sister Skaggs,
    I want to let you know that I share your faith and also your view on the values of the traditional family, as outlined by our leaders.
    I admire the fact that you share your testimony and convictions online. The negative reaction from others towards you truly saddens me, as I imagine you are a woman who truly tries to live a Christian life-- the kind of woman that would give your place in line to someone in need, or deliver baked goods to a neighbor, or provide a shoulder for another to cry on, all regardless of these differences of opinion. I wish that your readers would recognize that if they knew you in person then they might not feel so hostile towards you. It is in fact something else, and not you, that angers them so much. And if they would only allow friendship then perhaps they could feel that love and acceptance that they crave. Because the Gospel really is about love!
    Warm regards,

    1. Thank you, Naarah. Although I don't do too good on the "baked goods" thing. ;)
