Goldmund: "When Johnny Comes Marching Home"

For this Memorial Day, I recommend All Will Prosper, the 2011 release from composer Keith Kenniff's Goldmund project.  This release contains what I believe to be one of the most moving renditions of "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" I've ever heard.  It's a loose and lonely arrangement, and it beautifully conveys sadness, struggle, and, what I imagine to be, the small glimmer of hope that a homecoming will occur. 



To all the men and women who've defended our country, I thank you. 

Sincerely,
Letters From A Tapehead
