Today, I have one solo and one dual choral piece, both which combine hymns with traditional American folk songs. In my high school days, I loved singing both “Homeward Bound” and “Shenandoah”, and I’m happy nowadays that I still get to sing them with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
The solo combines the words of “O My Father”, with the melody and words of “Homeward Bound”, which really mesh up nicely.
O My Father_Homeward Bound (High Voice)
The choir piece takes nostalgic hymns and pairs them with the plaintive melody of the folk song “Shenandoah.”
Let me know what you think!
