That being said, regardless of one’s religious inclinations, this is one of the most fun choral pieces to sing ever (soprano–I get to do those high notes at the end). And regardless of one’s opinion of the Mormon faith, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir does one of the best renditions ever.

    I should add that perhaps the most powerful evocation of the Battle Hymn was done by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. when he quoted it at the end of his speech on the steps of the State Capitol in Montgomery, Alabama at the conclusion of the Selma-Montgomery March for Voting Rights in March 1965. Every time I hear that speech is just shakes me to my heart.
