I Am Bound for the Kingdom composed by Larry Shackley. For SATB choir, piano 4-hands. Sacred Anthem, Ascension, Christ the King, General. Octavo. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.10-4235L).
With this up-beat selection, Larry Shackley delivers a festive setting of an early American "Sacred Harp" melody. "I Am Bound for the Kingdom" is joyous, energetic, and easy to learned for choirs of all sizes. Larry's skillfully crafted four-hand piano accompaniment adds to the excitement, though this piece is equally effective with the two-hand option, which is available as a free downloadable file from the publisher's website.
