The principal theme from the second movement is equal in fame and popularity to Pachelbel's Canon and Albinoni's Adagio. This incredibly simple and beautiful theme was set to words by one of Dvorák's pupils William Arms Fisher. The resulting song Goin' Home is now as famous as the original symphonic writing. This incredibly beautiful melody can now be performed by a high school level ensemble. The horn and flugelhorn share in the principal theme and the first trumpet and trombone have a great duet passage in the middle section. A must on every brass program!
