Two years ago, an unexpected conversation with an LDS apostle started Paul Cardall on what became a very rewarding journey.
That journey culminates with the Friday, Sept. 16, release of his new album, “A New Creation,” along with sold-out concerts at the Salt Lake Tabernacle that night and Saturday, Sept. 17.
The album represents many hours of work and features famous voices, choirs and an orchestra, as well as other people with musical talents. At its heart is a new hymn co-written by Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.
For Cardall, a pianist and member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the album pays homage to Jesus Christ.
“I’ve wanted to do an album that offered a tribute to the Savior a soundtrack for the Bible, something that tells the story or teaches the plan of salvation in an indirect way,” Cardall said. “Things came together.”
