In honor of General Conference, here is  an arrangement of one of the most well-known LDS hymns.
“This is my arrangement of The Spirit of God, based on what was very likely the original tune as sung at the Kirtland Temple dedication in 1836.
The choir at the dedication was arranged in the four corners of the temple by sections in typical “Sacred Harp” fashion, giving a surround-sound effect to the 900 Saints who attended. It must have been quite awe-inspiring to listen to.”
