Download of pdfs of both an a cappella SATB and a piano/SATB arrangement.  Peter’s arrangement of a version of the traditional American “Fathers Now Our Meeting Is Over” AKA “Land on the Shore” that Peter learned from Paddy Tutty who learned it from John Henderson and Pippa Hall who learned it from Larry Gordon who may or may not have learned it from the Buna Hicks recording. Here is the story behind Land on the Shore.

Fathers now our meeting is over,
Fathers we must part,
And if I never see you anymore,
I’ll love you in my heart.

Yes we’ll land on the shore,
Yes we’ll land on the shore,
Yes we’ll land on the shore,
And be saved forever more.

Mothers…Sisters….Brothers….Dear Friends
