This poignant anthem was written in memory of a young man accidentally electrocuted by a special effects device called a Jacob’s Ladder. The text by Susan Boersma is based on Genesis 28:15-18 and the musical setting paints a vivid picture of the journey to one’s heavenly home. Scored for SATB choir, piano and cello. Stunning for All Saints or for any other service of remembrance.

Optional full score and violin or cello part is available for purchase separately.
