On Valentine's Day, I received the amazing 2CD soundtrack from the new musical based on the life of Nephi, from The Book of Mormon.
"With Mine Own Hand, The Musical Account of Nephi" was featured at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah during Campus Education Week, in August 2008. I missed that performance, but can't wait to see this dramatic musical production performed. The soundtrack is beautiful and so well done, I would compare the quality to that of an Andrew Lloyd Webber production, it's that good!
There is a website where you can learn more about the production, listen to samples from the soundtrack, purchase the CD and learn where the musical will be performed next. You can also find out how you can perform this musical in your own local stake.
Some of the songs from the soundtrack are: " The Book, The Gift", "Trusting Son", "Visionary Man", "I Have Dreamed a Dream", "Look!", "A Work Everlasting", "Be Still and Know I Am God", "Love So Born", and "Driven Forth Before the Wind". There are over 25 songs on the two CD's. The orchestration is excellent, truly powerful and moving.
Here is an introduction from the CD cover insert page:
The Story Behind "With Mine Own Hand"
"With Mine Own Hand: The Musical Account of Nephi" was created as an expression of personal testimony. The writers, producers, directors, designers, crew, actors and singers are a group of close knit Latter-day Saint friends who, as an outgrowth of their commitment to the gospel of Jesus Christ, have consecrated their talents to His work. Whole familes have been involved at every level, sacrificing significant time and resources to bring this project to fruition. Music and theatre are enjoyments, not vocations, for all who participated; none are personally profiting from these performances or products but all have felt joy, growth and unity as they have worked together to help fulfill a prophet's vision for the Book of Mormon."
Check out the "With Mine Own Hand" website, and then share it with your friends, I'm sure you will all enjoy this beautiful CD as much as I have !
