    Don't mistake this CD for a Barbershop style recording. This has a broad range or different music. It's also a mistake to try and compare the Vocal Majority to the Tabernacle Choir. I have heard both live on several occasions and both are amazing in their own right. The mission of the two organizations is different. The Vocal Majority sings barbershop style of which the Tabernacle Choir does very little. The Voical Majority also does not have the rigors of a weekly broadcast the Tabernacle Choir does so they are able to spend weeks polishing one number and inserting the incredible choreography. It's not uncommon for the Tabernacle Choir to perform a piece with only reading through it 2 or three times. There is very little time for rehearsal. Both organizations are incredible and I love listening to both. It depends on my mood.

    I am anxious to hear this recording. My prior chorus leader sang with the Vocal Majority who sang with the Tabenacle Choir and he stated theat the VM easily outsang Mo-Tab. I really enjoy barbershop, so it will be interesting to see how the choir does it.
