This energetic medley of gospel favorites opens slowly and freely with Softly and Tenderly Jesus Is Calling. Switching gears into an up tempo bluegrass style, it escalates in key, dynamics and tempo through three more choruses: Iâ€™ll Be Somewhere Listening for My Name (popularized by the movie, O Brother, Where Art Thou?); New Name in Glory; and Just Over in the Gloryland. Harlanâ€™s stylized accompaniment perfectly complements the voices.
