I deeply apologize, the actress in Snake Pit was Betsy Blair, and I think she sang the sone.
My apologies again, I check IMDB and Jan Clayton was the one who sang Going Home in the movie Snake Pit. I think her voice was dubbed in for Betsy Blair.
the angelic voice you may be thinking of is Chloe from Celtic Woman. She does a rendition of "Going Home"
I've enjoyed listening to this Masterpiece many times, over the decades, but never as intently as I did a few moments ago, when the thought suddenly struck me; "If the Lord saw fit to take me home before he returns, I would very much want this piece, [all six and a half minutes of it, i.e. to the track Dvorak - Largo "New World" Symphony complete with Lyrics], played without interruption at the very end of the service before being borne upon the shoulders of my children."
God Bless You Steve
God Bless You Steve
Does anyone know where the instrumentals to Jan Clayton's version of "Goin' Home" may be? I plan on singing for my church and I'd like to find a site that has the insturmentals of her version. You might remember her from the 1947 movie "The Snake Pit". That would help TONS if someone could help. Thank you and God Bless.
Thank all of you in this thread!! And Steve Lieu! I've picked up several new lyrics and performances that I hadn't known about before. Just saw "The Snake Pit" last nite on TCM and was particularly moved by the singer's performance. I (along with a number of friends) have chosen this "Going Home", "Pie Jesu' and "Lux Aeterna' for final services.
I recently heard this on an episode of the TV show "Big Love" (Season 4, Episode 2 "The Greater Good") and liked it so much that I started to look around for it. Teresa, if you are still around, I think that the "angelic voice" you heard singing this was probably one of the soloists from the Libera Boy's Choir, in South London, England. Here is a YouTube link for it. Enjoy!Personally, I think this version is the best one I have ever heard.
Does anyone know if the lyrics are copyrighted and if so by whom?
found this version of Dvorak New world Symphony and sounds beautiful
