Wayfaring Stranger by Larry Shackley. For SATB choir, piano. 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.
