"Going Home" for Organ

About this sheet music

At a time of great loss, many people find themselves looking for words, they struggle to express their sincere, and often heartfelt, empathy for the sad occasion, it is at these times that music can unveil a dimension of meaning and feeling that words alone cannot create.

I created this hymn version of the folk spiritual "Goin' Home" (from William Arms Fisher/Antonín Leopold Dvořák: "The New World Symphony" Largo Symphony No. 9 in E minor, Op. 95 Movement 2) for the Sierra Vista United Methodist Church (SVUMC) in an attempt to reinforce solace in the somber occasion. I believe this intrepretation reveals the light at the end of the tunnel.
