Going Home: Largo from Antonin Dvorak's New World Symphony
The Largo from Antonin Dvorak's New World Symphony (No. 9, Op. 95) is a very beautiful melody. This melody was the basis for a spiritual written by William Arms Fisher. I have made arrangements of both the melody and the spiritual. I have also included a video of the spiritual sung by Paul Robeson. I think his accompanist is Alan Booth, although it may be Laurence Brown. The combination of voice and piano is wonderful.
