“I'll Fly Away” is a universally popular hymn performed in various Christian worshiping services: by Baptists, Methodists, Nazarenes, Pentecostals and the Church of Christ. Today, it is an essential part of many hymnals, normally under the categories of ‘eternal life’, ‘acceptance’ and ‘heaven’. The work was written in 1929 by the American Gospel music composer Albert Edward Brumley. He was inspired for writing this composition while picking cotton at his family’s farm and listening to an old ballad that is now believed to be called “The Prisoner’s Song”. It that sang about a prison’s dream to fly over the prison’s walls and get freed. The new piece, with a very similar message, took Brumley three years to complete and according to the composer, he had no idea it would become so popular all over the world. “I'll Fly Away” was recorded multiple times, including by such artists as George Jones, Alison Krauss and Gillian Welch, The Chuck Wagon Gang, The Kossoy Sisters and many others. More Gospel music hits by A.E. Brumley include “Turn Your Radio On”, “This World Is Not My Home”, “Jesus, Hold My Hand”, “I’ll Meet You in the Morning” – all ready for print and play at MusicaNeo.

I absolutely enjoy playing old hymns like this. Moreover, Ill Fly Away technically is a Gospel composition but it also has a lot from country music style, specifically the snappy and catchy rhythm. I was delighted with the ease of learning it, studying the piece from beginning to end basically took me a week, a very beautiful rendition.
