The song “Goin’ Home”
The theme from the Largo (2nd movement of New World Symphony) was adapted into the spiritual-like song “Goin’ Home”, often mistakenly considered a folk song or traditional spiritual, by Dvořák’s pupil William Arms Fisher, who wrote the lyrics in 1922. Dvořák himself may have modelled the tune on the spirituals written by composer Harry Burleigh, whom he met during his sojourn in America.
