Wayfaring Stranger composed by Larry Shackley. For SATB choir, piano accompaniment. Sacred Anthem, All Saints' Day, Eastertide, General, Lent. Octavo. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.10-4185L).
Larry Shackley's arrangement of this American folk favorite is a stunning portrayal of life's journey through hardship and loneliness and the comfort that lies "over Jordan...over home." Blues harmonies in the accompaniment beautifully support accessible vocals, and the basses will have a chance to shine in this setting that is ideal for church or school.
