A collection of songs suitable for funerals or memorial services. The hearty folk hymn "I'm Going Home" has a strength and vitality so typical of the songs of the Sacred Harp. I'm Going Home was featured in the oscar-nominated film, Cold Mountain, and Pepper Choplin's accessible a cappella arrangement is destined to be just as successful. Simple, but not simplistic, this sturdy chorus will stir the soul. "Depart in Peace" is a wonderful closing for any service. Your congregation will leave with this blessing in song echoing long after. Everyone needs good benedictions and parting blessings and no one does them better than Don Besig. He features a new version of the classic "God Be with You Till We Meet Again" as well as several other original blessings to round out this useful grouping. The writing is well-suited to choirs of every level of achievement. Essential! The anthem "We Are Not Alone" touches the heart with its reassuring message of God's faithfulness and power. The choir supplies rhythmic energy with its repetitive phrase, We Are Not Alone, while the soloist glides above in smooth sustained lines. The piece will leave the congregation singing this simple but profound truth long after the service has ended.
