Reading Mormon Choir

About 1980 - 1990




If you have pictures or recording of the choir or if you have corrections then please let me know. Email Alan Johnson (please delete spaces either side of the @ in the email address)

The Organisation:

The choir was started about 1980 and was dissolved soon after the chorister went to Utah in about 1990.

Chorister was Rosalind B Hall (BM, Royal Academy of Music, 1977 and MM, Brigham Young University, 1992)

Pianist was Alison Boome.

The 'Reading Mormon Choir' is made up of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from the Reading area. They were originally organised to provide music for worship services, but they have also given many concerts and have found much joy in sharing their music with the sick and elderly in hospitals and nursing homes. Although the choir love to sing for their own pleasure, their real mission is to touch the lives of those who listen.

The choir have appeared on BBC Television with Bob Monkhouse, as contestants in the 1989 series of Opportunity Knocks

Here is some music from the choir. Please download it rather than playing it, by clicking on the title of the album.
(By playing the music more than once you will be using much more of my bandwidth and costing me more money!)

I understand that those who have purchased the tapes will not be breaking copyright if they down load this music.

Because I Have been Given Much


From Swaddling Wrap


The Snow Lay on the Ground


Because I have been given much

I need thee every hour

Thou shalt love the lord

Home's bright love

Though deepening trials

Guide us, 0 thou great Jehovah

I am a child of God

O love, that will not let me go

I heard him come

Were you there?

Called to serve him

Lord keep me close to thee


Night of Nights

Gift of Love

Calypso Christmas

Star of Bethlehem

Before the marvel of this Night

We Need a Little Christmas

Pie Jesu

Star in the East

Ding Dong Merrily on High

From Swaddling Wrap

In the Bleak Mid-Winter

Have Yourselves a Merry Little Christmas


The snow lay on the ground

Zither Carol

Silent Night

The First Nowell

Jesus, Jesus rest your head

Away in a manger

Ding Dong merrily

Sleigh ride

The Christmas Song

White Christmas

Winter Wonderland

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
