The Book of Mormon was named best musical theater album at the The Book of Mormon original cast recording was recorded at MSR Studios, Studio A in . "The Mormons Take Manhattan: The Book of Mormon soundtrack on God. The Book of Mormon is a religious satire musical that pokes fun at the beliefs of The Church of Jesus Christ of Book of Mormon - Original Broadway Cast (CD).
Consider the string section: the show has one fellow switching between violin and viola; the CD has six violinists, two violists and two cellists. That's ten times as many strings on the cast recording as in the theatre, plus triple the reeds and double the brass. Hochman is one of our finest contemporary orchestrators, mind you; but there's only so much you can do with nine pieces.
But, then, economics were different — and She Loves Me wound up losing money. Which will not be the case with Mormon. Two electronic keyboards and one drummer make up a full third of the Mormon pit band; under these conditions, even the most talented orchestrator isn't going to get much orchestral color.
Splurging on a larger orchestra for the CD makes perfect sense, mind you, when the producers can afford to do so, and is certainly not unheard of though usually to a much smaller extent. The results, here, sound great; but what you hear on the cast album should not be mistaken for the Tony-nominated orchestrations.
All of this Mormon discussion leaves us with a fundamental question. Given the vast number of surprises, plot and otherwise, to be found on the CD — and considering the difficulty most theatregoers will have in scoring Mormon tickets in the near future — will listening to the CD in the meantime spoil the experience? Absolutely not, sez I. Why deprive yourself of the fun?
And this score is plenty of fun, whether on stage or CD. If you have tickets next week, or maybe even next month, you might want to wait. Otherwise, go ahead and enjoy Mormon now. A good chunk of the humor is visual, from the many dozens of sight gags and the nifty choreography by Casey Nicholaw.
Which is to say that even if you have listened to the score a dozen times, you're first viewing will be — there's that word again! The CD booklet merits a word or three. Nowadays, face it, many people just download their music. Easy, quick, and no trip to the CD store or whatever passes for a CD store nowadays.
Book of Mormon, The lyrics
The closest thing I have to a local CD store, which is to say one of those big bookstores with a large CD section, just went bankrupt and sold the fixtures. Easy to download digitally, yes; but the Book of Mormon CD comes with a first-class and altogether snazzy booklet. An essay by Frank Rich, who I must say is pretty good at this sort of thing; a detailed synopsis; and full lyrics, accompanied by dozens of delicious full-color photos.
These from Joan Marcus, who has been giving us fine show photography for more than 20 years now. What's more, the booklet has been especially well designed, with handy lyric quotes emblazoned on most of the photos.
The liner notes are a joy to look at, really. The CD is a joy to listen to, too. And the show?
Musical comedy rapture. The cast recording for The Book of Mormon was recorded on March 21, 22 and 28, Because of payment schedules imposed by union rules, Broadway cast recordings are traditionally recorded over a single hour day, with all instruments and vocals tracked together.
In addition to reducing costs, this approach enables the singers to control the tempo of the songs. But according to Frank Filipetti, who both recorded and mixed the album,  The Book of Mormon' s complex vocal arrangements called for a different strategy in which the instrumental tracks were recorded first, followed by a separate day dedicated to the cast.
Filipetti said that the arrangements had "vocal parts within vocal parts within vocal parts. Other mixing challenges included "creating enough air and clarity for all the vocalists while still maintaining the vibrancy of [Lopez's] orchestral arrangements", as well as dealing with the score's wide range of musical styles. Oremus and Lopez were heavily involved in the orchestra recording, whereas Stone and Parker were more invested in the vocal session. According to Filipetti, their main concern was making sure the jokes were coming across.
The Book of Mormon Set
The album was recorded to Pro Tools allowing multiple tracks of recordings to be present in the final cut. The album was mastered by Scott Hull. In the recording's liner notes, Frank Rich wrote that The Book of Mormon "scrupulously follows the old testament of Broadway circa —, A.
Other songs, he writes, owe much to the parodies of Tom Lehrer. Kristin Rawls, in her critique of the score, draws several parallels to other musicals. As the audio was being mixed , the musical's popularity exploded, giving the show a much higher profile than when the album was first recorded. During its first week of its iTunes Store release, the recording became "the fastest-selling Broadway cast album in iTunes history", according to representatives for the production, ranking No.
The cast album for the Green Day musical American Idiot also ranked among the top 10 when it debuted in The start for The Book of Mormon was also the best debut sales week for a cast set since The Little Mermaid cast album in The cast album also started at No.
However, after the show's success at the Tony Awards , The Book of Mormon cast album broke sales records again when it skyrocketed up the Billboard charts back to number 3 on the Billboard on June 15, making it the highest charting Broadway cast album—and first top 10—since , when Hair spent 13 straight weeks at No. The previous best sales week for a cast set belonged to the original London cast recording of Highlights from The Phantom of the Opera , which sold 54, over the Christmas week of site MP3 promoted the record aggressively through Twitter and through a commercial in the Tony Awards telecast.
Matthew Perpetua of Rolling Stone complimented the recording's witty lyrics and memorable songs and stated the album would leave listeners "desperate to score tickets to see the actual show".
