Program Notes

This beautiful melody based on the Largo from Dvorak's New World Symphony is one of the most instantly recognizable melodies in western music.

- Program Note from publisher

The theme from the Largo was adapted into the spiritual-like song Goin' Home, often mistakenly considered a folk song or traditional spiritual, by Dvořák's pupil William Arms Fisher, who wrote the lyrics in 1922.
