The Grammy Award winning Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir releases its first non-seasonal CD in four years tomorrow when their 27th recorded project “Love Lead The Way” goes on sale on online digital stores and www.brooklyntabernacle.org . The forty-year old ensemble known for evergreen songs such as “I’m Amazed” and “God is Working” is currently enjoying a new radio success with “Faithful to the End” which is gaining ground on inspirational radio formats.
The fifteen song set was produced by choir founder Carol Cymbala and music director Jason Michael Webb. The album boasts the majestic orchestrations that have become the choir’s trademark. Their in-house team of writers composed most of the songs. There are soul-stirring ballads such as “Breathe,” as well as, up-tempo tracks like the title song and the rock-edged “Let Your Kingdom Come.” They also feature full-throttle hand-clappers such as “The Man” and “Working It Out.” The set includes “The Battle Hymn of The Republic” (which they performed at this year’s inaugural swearing-in ceremony on the steps of the U.S. Capitol before an audience of 800,000 on the ground and a billion or so via television) and new renditions of William McDowell’s #1 hit “I Won’t Go Back” and Preashea Hilliard’s “Oh, How We Love You.”
