Jenny Burton and Catherine Russell: “To My Father’s House
Inspirational Song of the Week
Monday – Friday, April 13 – April 17, 2015
About Goin’ Home – On Heaven and Beyond – A Gospel Cantata:
Here is a joyful, sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, and always musical exploration of the transition from this world to the next. Though some might speculate that it’s about our passing or our eventual transition, we prefer to think of it as a chance to stop our busy lives and take a musical moment to open our eyes to the timelessness of our future. So it’s really a celebration of eternal life.
About To My Father’s House: I originally fell in love with this next song recorded in the early 70’s by The Edwin Hawkins Singers. Back then we all fell in love with the infectious joy of “Oh Happy Day”, but what really stuck with me over the years has been the spirit of “My Father’s House.” Being in the studio with both Cat and Jenny when they recorded their solo work was simply a divine experience.”– Peter Link
