Singing these hymns has given me a greater perspective into the real commitment it takes to serve a mission and also the incredible blessings that come from it.
I’ve been flooded with memories of my own mission as we have practiced, performed, and recorded the “Set Apart” album. I was able to sing with conviction as I imagined the faces of people that I love so much, who I was privileged to serve as a missionary.
I’m so thankful for the arrangers of these hymns. There is a newness and a beauty about many of these songs that makes it seem so much more personal to sing and to listen to.
If any group in the whole world should make a missionary CD, it’s the BYU Men’s Chorus. You feel that tremendous power coming from them when they sing and the enormous collective goodness that they emanate. There’s nothing in the world that could be a stronger power for good than that.
