In Celebration of the Human Voice - The Essential Musical Instrument

Poor Wayfaring Stranger

From the Bound for Glory collection, this highly recognized spiritual carries in its essence the longing for peace and rest. The bittersweet spirit is front and center in an arrangement replete with lyrical keyboard and thoughtful part writing. As the song of the sojourner rises and falls with the crescendo of the words, one imagines a homecoming just over the hill with each hopeful verse. Sensitive writing! Score and Parts (pno, perc 1-2, vn 1-2, va, vc, db) available as a digital download.
