Bryn Terfel: Homeward Bound - an album guide
You might be expecting a booming organ and some triumphant trumpets on this well-known hymn. Think again: Bryn's take on the music is something altogether more humble. Twisting string harmonies add an unexpected sense of pathos to this classic tune, and transform this rousing choral classic into a touching personal expression of faith.
