Anna Stout Barry - 1933 to 2018

The dulcimer world has suffered another great loss recently, with the passing of Anna S. Barry, at the age of 84.   Anna lived near Boone, NC, and was a regular instructor at the Dulcimer Playing Workshop that was held annually at Appalachian State University at Boone.   She was a masterful arranger who never saw the diatonic fret board of the instrument as a limitation, but rather as an opportunity for exploration.   She would often invent new tunings for the instrument that would allow her to arrange a tune to be played as the composer intended - including playing it in the original key.   Her skill at arranging can be seen in her repertoire book "Soundings" which she originally published in 1983, with a second revised edition in 1993.  Hers was one of the first books I ever saw that included contemporary music for the mountain dulcimer, including everything from Broadway show tunes to Simon and Garfunkel hits.  Many of us used that book as a model in developing our own arranging style, and much of what I personally know about how to arrange for the mountain dulcimer was learned from studying Anna's arrangements, from her workshops at Boone, and from her continuous guidance and encouragement.   If you are a mountain dulcimer player, even if you never met her personally, you are still being influenced by her as a result of all the students she taught and shared with over the years.  She had a particular love of arranging tunes "in parts", and liked to include other instruments along with the dulcimer in various ensemble combinations.  She was generous with sharing her knowledge, time, and talents with anyone who asked, and that would often-times result in life-long friendships that went far beyond just exchanging ideas about the dulcimer.   I will greatly miss my friend and mentor, but I hear a new voice in that "distant triumph song" ... with a distinct southern drawl!

Anna was fond of browsing YouTube for music, and would make play lists of ones she particularly enjoyed, or wanted to work on arranging. Her family relates that one that was in her play list recently was a version of the tune "Going Home". Since July was Anna's birth month, I thought it would be appropriate to honor her memory by posting an arrangement of it. It actually is part of a symphony composed by Antonin Dvorak titled "From The New World". At the time, Dvorak had been living in the United States, as the Director of the National Conservatory of American Music. He was commissioned to write a symphonic work by the New York Philharmonic orchestra, which debuted it at Carnegie Hall in 1893. The symphony enjoyed immediate success, and quickly became part of the regular repertoire of orchestras all over the world.

 

Several years later, a student of Dvorak at the Conservatory named William Arms Fisher wrote a set of lyrics for the 2nd movement of Dvorak's symphony he called "Going Home".  Its powerful words, paired with Dvorak's melody, have been a source of comfort and inspiration over the decades since.

 

 

Here is a link to a YouTube video of this song being performed by the English boys' choir Libera (from Anna's play list): 

This is a 3-part arrangement (melody, harmony, and bass), so find a couple of playing partners, and enjoy!

In music and friendship,

--Tull

 

Lyrics

Goin' home. Goin' home. I'm a-goin' home. 

Quiet-like some still day, I'm just goin' home. 

It's not far, just close by, through an open door. 

Work all done, cares laid by, goin' to roam no more; 

Mother's there 'xpecting me, father's waiting, too, 

Lots of folks gathered there, all the friends I knew. 

 

Morning star lights the way, restless dream all done. 

Shadows gone, break of day, real life just begun. 

There's no break, there's no end, just a-living on; 

Wide awake, with a smile, going on and on. 

Going home. Going home, I'm just going home. 

It's not far, just close by, through an open door.
