MIGHTY FORTRESS 

Format:  Compact Disc

 

Choir of the West – Richard Sparks, Conductor

 

From the Choir of the West 75th Anniversary Scandinavian Tour, much of this music was recorded live in some of the great cathedrals and churches in Norway and Sweden. The glorious acoustics of these buildings, as well as the excitement of the live performance, are all part of this recording. A Mighty Fortress captures for you the best of these concerts to enjoy time and again.
