Antonin Dvorakís Symphony No. 9, "From the New World," is one of my favorite symphonies. I got curious about the source of the second movementís melody after again hearing the tune ďGoing HomeĒ near the end of this morningís Sunday Mass. Apparently, there has been a lot of debate about melodyís origin. One my google hits was the below site that struck me as being very similar to Jim Moranís Comparative Video 101. I think Jim should be pleased, as they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. https://www.wrti.org/post/story-behind-nostalgic-melody-dvorak-became-song-goin-home
