With the acquisition of a new CD, listeners can journey with the BYU-Hawaii Concert Choir to China and Mongolia through the sounds of the choir's 2007 tour.
The disc is the first of its kind in that nearly every element of the recording was supervised and produced by university workers.
"The finished product is a wonderful memento of the Concert Choir's landmark Asia tour. It contains the best renditions of each song performed, gathered from live performances in the major cities of the tour," said Gary Smith, producer of the recording.
Smith emphasized that many people played key roles in the look and sound of the completed compact disc. He also called the project "a major accomplishment" because past such endeavors had been produced exclusively outside the Hawaii campus.
