The road home

First line:
Tell me where is the road
composer
arranged in 2002 for The Dale Warland Singers; based on the tune Prospect from the 1835 Southern Harmony hymnal
author of text

 
Stephen Paulus was always moved by the spirit of collaboration he experienced with his peers and neighbours in Minnesota. A particularly fruitful collaboration was with Michael Dennis Browne, who provided texts for at least sixteen Paulus compositions. The road home sets Browne’s text to the tune ‘Prospect’, an American shape-note hymn tune compiled in Southern Harmony in 1835. Paulus made this arrangement for The Dale Warland Singers in 2002. It is hard not to be moved by this well-loved piece, which somehow carries just as much emotion as a spiritual such as Deep river. Fittingly, this hymn has been sung many times in services and celebrations of the life of a composer who sadly died during the preparation of this recording in 2014.
