The Mormon Tabernacle Choir is nothing less than an iconic American institution. Assembled in 1847, the choir made its first recordings for Columbia in 1910, and has issued a steady stream of recordings ever since, including several Christmas-themed ones. This live set, which was recorded and filmed for a PBS holiday special (plus a CD and DVD release), features British tenor Alfie Boe taking center stage for five tracks, as well as adding a fun instrumental version of "Sleigh Ride" by organist Richard Elliott.
