Lift your spirits with a brand-new collection of inspirational folk hymns and songs. Although life may be difficult at times, over 600 youthful and energetic singers and instrumentalists from BYU combine to inspire you on your own journey home.

Heard originally on BYU-TV as part of the new video production The Pilgrim's Journey Home, the CD The Pilgrim's Journey Home includes all of the songs from the broadcast as well as several bonus songs not heard on the broadcast.

If you missed the premiere BYU-TV broadcast of the program on Tuesday, 11/16/10, you can watch the program "on demand" at http://www.byutv.org/watch/480-403 or look online for future BYU-TV air dates. It is a musical performance full of life and emotion that will not soon be forgotten.
