Joyful, by Nicolas Giusti and Gérald Caussé
Nicolas Giusti (an acclaimed Italian composer and opera conductor from Rome) met Gérald Caussé (an accomplished pianist and native of Bordeaux, France) ten years ago. They became fast friends and bonded over their love of playing the piano and their shared faith. For this album, Nicolas composed five piano duet arrangements of classic hymns with the purpose of sharing the joy of the gospel. Featuring classic hymns like “I Need Thee Every Hour” and “God Be With You Til We Meet Again”, the level of talent on this album is truly magnificent, but what stands out most is the overwhelming feeling of joy that pours out from every note.
Let Us All Press On, by The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square
Let Us All Press On, features beloved classics like "All Creatures of Our God and King" and "More Holiness Give Me” and is the first hymns album from the Choir in seven years. The rousing title track, "Let Us All Press On," is a fresh arrangement by Richard Elliott first performed after Russell M. Nelson's historic address by the same name in the spring of 2018.
Lamb and Lion, by City of Enoch
Lamb & Lion is City of Enoch's follow-up to their successful debut album, Sweet Redeemer. This album marks an exciting new chapter for the band. They use their signature three-part harmonies and catchy melodies to present a brilliant concept album: six peaceful and contemplative songs (the "Lamb" half of the album), and six rousing, exciting, and motivating songs (the "Lion" half of the album). These two sides of the album mirror two sides of the gospel: it provides deeply personal inner peace and spiritual strength, as well as excitement and motivation to rise to the occasion and help others come to Zion.
Sacred Lullabies, by Camille Nelson
Coming soon! Blending elements of classical, folk and new-age music, Sacred Lullabies features peaceful acoustic guitar and violin melodies of traditional and original hymns featuring guest vocalists Madilyn Paige, Alex Sharpe (formerly of Celtic Woman) and more.
