This beautiful melody is well known as a movement of Dvorak's New World Symphony. Originally sung for Dvorak by Harry T. Burleigh, a talented African-American music student at the famed National Conservatory of Music in New York City, this spiritual has become an American classic. Robert W. Smith has arranged "Going Home" for the beginning band using limited ranges and technical challenges allowing the teaching focus on musically sensitive performance. An invaluable teaching tool suitable for performance at any concert.
