Goin’ Home

Chor Leoni’s earlier exploration of Canadian folk songs (Canadian Safari) has been so popular that we were inspired to record another disc of folk songs, this time from around the world. We all know Canada as a land composed of citizens from every corner of the world. It is one of the things that make this wonderful land diverse, exciting, and unique. Try as we might we could not crowd onto one CD songs from all the places whose people compose our paradise of the north – but we tried!

Whether you come from Finland, America, Africa, China, or one of the many other countries whose favourite folk songs we have collected (including our beloved Canada), we hope they bring you that bittersweet tightness in the throat and tear in the eye which only comes when you are “goin’ home.”

  1. Best recording yet. I keep practicing my voice, but can’t really match those bass voices yet. Love the one about the Christmas angel, if i had the voice of an angel; My second favorite record is Yuletide Fires. Too bad my local record store won’t get it for me. Great work, guys.
