    Temple Square on Tape

    Many visitors to Temple Square in Salt Lake City are taking home a new cassette tape of Tabernacle Choir music, combined with a message about the restoration of the gospel, which missionary-minded members might find an appropriate gift for non-member friends.

    “The Mormon Tabernacle Choir Sings Sixteen Favorite Songs, and The Story of the Restoration” was produced by the choir and the Church’s Missionary Department. The tape was a response to frequent requests from visitors for something that could help them recapture the essence of their experiences on Temple Square.

    It contains a mixture of renditions by the choir of hymns and songs which have proved popular with the public. These include “Come, Come Ye Saints,” “I Know That My Redeemer Lives,” “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” “The Sound of Music,” and “On a Clear Day.”

    In addition, J. Spencer Kinard, announcer for the Tabernacle Choir’s weekly “Music and the Spoken Word” program, narrates “The Story of the Restoration.”

    The tape, stock number VVOT2091, is available not only on Temple Square, but also at visitors’ centers in English-speaking areas of the Church. In addition, it may be ordered through the Salt Lake Distribution Center, 1999 West 1700 South, Salt Lake City, UT 84104. The cost is $5.00.
