Included Mormons in pile of blues.

I was recently offered a fantastic opportunity to rifle through hundreds of cds at our local public radio station with the offer, "Take whatever you like." it was an eclectic mix of mostly blues, jazz, bluegrass, folk and alternative music. Felt like the proverbial kid in the candy store. Came across a copy of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir doing traditional gospel music. Not something I would generally go looking for on iTunes but it made both the first and second cut of selections and is one of the forty or so that came home with me. So far I've enjoyed everything, including the Mormons.
