Forty pieces (mostly PVG arrangements, with some instrumentals suitable for piano or organ solo) appropriate for use at funerals, memorial services, or other occasions where music plays an important, yet unobtrusive, role.
This well-designed collection includes hymns (Nearer My God to Thee, Rock of Ages, What a Friend We Have in Jesus,) and spirituals (Going Home, Shall We Gather by the River?) Instrumentals include Faure's Pavane, Meditation from Thais, Air on the G String, Ave Verum, Corpus (Mozart,) Jerusalem, and an organ arrangement of Bach's "Come, Sweet Death."
Going Home features new arrangements of every piece, in beautifully pianistic arrangements, with full lyrics and guitar chord charts (excepting the instrumentals, which do not include chord charts.)
Also included are 74 tracks on two CDs, with demonstration recordings of each piece and accompaniment tracks for all vocal arrangements - useful when rehearsal time is limited or no accompanist is available.
