That marvelous maestro of melodious masterpieces, John Williams, has done it again! Triumphant, rousing, majestic and inspirational are just a sample of the words that come to mind when describing this splendid piece of music, a piece of music that matches--if not transcends--the glory of the Olympic Games.While the entire CD is truly magnificent, I found the title piece, "Call of the Champions"(The Official Theme of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games) to be the most awesome of the 15 tracks.

Track Listing:

1. Call of the Champions (The Official Theme of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games) (Voice)
2. American Journey/I. Immigration and Building
3. American Journey/II. The Country at War
4. American Journey/III. Popular Entertainment
5. American Journey/IV. Arts and Sports
6. American Journey/V. Civil Rights and the Women's Movement
7. American Journey/VI. Flight and Technology
8. Song for World Peace
9. Jubilee 350
10. The Mission Theme
11. For New York
12. Sound the Bells!
13. Hymn to New England
14. Celebrate Discovery
15. Summon the Heroes

In "Call of the Champions", John Williams' composing/conducting prowess is perfectly complemented by the Utah Symphony Orchestra and a choral arrangement for the venerable and world renowned Morman Tabernacle Choir. Listening to this almost ethereal harmony of orchestra and chorus is nothing less than sonic ecstacy. The 14 other tracks (including Williams' "Summon the Heroes", a piece originally written for the '96 summer games) are like a delightful bonus!"American Jouney" is the perfect ode to the Olympic games, as well as a tribute to the American spirit.

I am reminded of the three words sung by the Morman Tabernicle Choir in "Call of the Champions" when describing this classical triumph: Citius, Altius, Fortius--swifter, higher, stronger!
