My Old Kentucky Home

Music by Stephen Foster

"My Old Kentucky Home, Good-Night!" is an anti-slavery ballad written by Stephen Foster, probably composed in 1852. It was published in January 1853 by Firth, Pond, & Co. of New York. Foster was likely inspired by Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin, with imagery witnessed on his visits to the Bardstown, Kentucky farm called Federal Hill. In Foster's sketchbook, the song was originally entitled "Poor Uncle Tom, Good-Night!", but he altered it to "My Old Kentucky Home, Good-Night!" Frederick Douglass wrote in his 1855 autobiography My Bondage and My Freedom that the song "awakens sympathies for the slave, in which antislavery principles take root, grow, and flourish

Various Arrangers : American Folk Songs Vol 1

The a cappella arrangement of 'Home on the Range' bursts with colorful harmonies and textures which expertly interpret the text. Described by some as a "perfect melody," this American standard gives your ensemble a chance to show off their impeccable tuning and blending abilities for concert, contest, or festival. 'Battle Hymn of the Republic' captures the triumphant sound of the original tune with great drum-like sounds coming from the men and the beautiful melody and harmony coming from the womens' voices. The legato feel and beautiful harmonies in 'My Old Kentucky Home' are breathtaking. This is a great tribute to Stephen Foster's original tune. The old southern tune 'Poor Wayfarin' Stranger' is simple but elegant. The unison sections add great contrast to the sections with more vocal harmony. John Biggs' 'Auction Cries' is a hillarious interpretation of text taken from auction advertisements in the Emporia Gazette (Kansas). This is a fast tune, with each voice part doing something totally different from the other. A great encore piece!

Songlist: Auction Cries, Battle Hymn of the Republic, Home On The Range, My Old Kentucky Home
