From teenagers to grandfathers, and pops concerts to Veteran’s Day programs, this arrangement will stir emotion from the audience and the singers alike. This simple and very tasteful arrangement (more often in two-part than in four-part) tells the gut-wrenching story of a father praying his son will come home from war alive, wishing for God to take his own life so that his son might live. All men’s choruses, large or small, old or young, will connect with this message. Combining adult men with students is extremely effective with this work.
