I was really dissapointed when the Mormon Tabernackle Choir decided to tackle my favourite anthem, because they were...well...frankly dreadful

If you dont believe me, try comparing them to the tracks below

I Was Glad

(Mormon Tabernackle)

(Tempo is too slow...Brass is out of time during fanfares, The melody is drowned out by bass harmonies, Messy diction on echo phrases, Organ not loud enough)

(Westminster Abbey)

(On the occasion of the Marriage of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Excellent giving over of the organ fanfare to the brass section, Messy diction from the Choir though, Organ not loud enough)

(Saint Pauls Cathedral)

In short, apart from the fact the editing has chopped off half the opening fanfare...this rendition is nothing short of...perfect
