About this title:

Synopsis: That the Oratorio Society of Utah should exist at all is a wonderment. It was born in controversy. In part, at least, its existence is due to early demands that Salt Lake City be represented by a nondenominational choral organization. These demands were resisted by many in the community, of course, and as a result the Society has not been immune to partisan resentment. Nonetheless, it is one of the important organizations that bridged the gulf between Mormon and non-Mormon camps in what had been, since the "invasion" of Johnson's army and the days of Colonel Patrick E. Connon's outspoken anti-Mormonism, a seriously divided city. As much as any arts organization could, it helped to shape and perpetuate the cordial relations that presently prevail among Utah's diverse ethnic and religious elements. At the same time it has become one of America's most highly respected oratorio societies. It has brought to Utah some of the nation's foremost choral soloists and since World War II, several among the world's most highly regarded conductors. In this study of the Oratorio Society and of the pioneer musical heritage of which it is the inheritor, Mr. Smith has detailed the development of Salt Lake City music. In five introductory chapters he identifies the major organizations, personalities, and social and cultural trends that shaped Salt Lake City's widely heralded interest in music and that eventually made founding of the Oratorio Society a virtual inevitability - its annual Tabernacle performances of Handel's Messiah as indispensable part of the city's cultural life.... In addition, a three part appendix includes all members of the Society's Board of Directors; chorus officers and officials; charter members of the Society; a detailed chronology of all Society performances; and the names of more than six thousand chorus members who have sung with the Society in the nearly three-quarters of a century it has existed.
