Composer: Wood, Dale
Sample Producer: OrganART Media
Sample Set: Wilhelm Sauer - 1904 OAM
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Modern
My third and probably last upload from
"Organ Book of American Folk Hymns," SMP, 1970.

This “folk-hymn” was published in the shape-note hymnal, “Southern Harmony,” in 1835. The short, raucous canon in Wood’s arrangement evokes the traditional shape-note singing style:

When I can read my title clear
To mansions in the skies,
I’ll bid farewell to ev’ry fear,
And wipe my weeping eyes.
I feel like I’m on my journey home.

Discrete Audacity reverb added..
Performance: Live
Recorded in: Stereo
