“Rise, My Soul” features arrangements of 12 sacred and inspirational hymns
BYU Women's Chorus will release “Rise, My Soul” on March 6 — the choir’s first record since 2015. The album will be available for digital and physical purchase and is being distributed through BYU Records.
“An album of music is a representation of the artistry and heart of an ensemble,” said Women’s Chorus director Sonja Poulter. “‘Rise, My Soul’ showcases some of the best repertoire the choir has sung and will be a resource for comfort and peace for each listener.” The new album includes performances from 2016-2019 and is the final album for Women’s Chorus conductor Jean Applonie, who has served as conductor since the fall of 2004. The album features arrangements of 12 hymns, including “How Great Thou Art,” “I Know That My Redeemer Lives,” “How Can I Keep from Singing” and “Rise My Soul” — which are among Applonie’s favorites on the album.
