"When I had finished my songbook, “Solos For Sunday Morning” I asked Julia if there might be a song or two from the 13 songs that she would like to sing on her new sacred CD she was working on. She listened for a few days to my demos and got back to me saying, “I’d like to do 11 of them.” Every composer’s dream!
So I went to work orchestrating the songs for her. Together we had four months of recording heaven, digging into the wondrous truths from the Bible contained therein. We added 2 more from other composers to round it out to 13 songs – 13 songs for her 13th CD. We then thought it only appropriate to title the CD, “Sunday Morning.” I feel that it is some of her best work." ~Peter Link

Goin’ Home – On Heaven and Beyond – A Gospel Cantata
Here is a joyful, sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, and always musical exploration of the transition from this world to the next. Though some might speculate that it's about our passing or our eventual transition, we prefer to think of it as a chance to stop our busy lives and take a musical moment to open our eyes to the timelessness of our future. So it's really a celebration of eternal life.
The music is drawn from both original compositions mostly by Peter Link, and also from the rich tradition of beloved Spiritual songs and Gospel lyrics from the past hundred years of the American songbook.
Sometimes these Spiritual songs seem to tell us one thing, but for many of us, practical sense and our own personal consideration might ask us to think deeper.

Affirmations is a 3-song album of songs performed by Julia Wade and written, produced and orchestrated by Peter Link.
Thoughts from Peter Link:
“Each of these three songs is an affirming statement on a given subject. Even Now is a melody that I woke up to one morning that was given to me in my sleep. The lyrics came to me over the next week as the music coursed constantly through my brain. It affirms hope.
“Love Is The Reason For Living is a song that images the tidal waves of problems that we all sometimes face in life. It turns out that Love is the answer to each.
We dwell in the arena Of immense conflicting forces Our lives are swayed by counsel From a million diff'rent sources As we near each troubled crossroad With a rising tide of fear And wonder what becomes of us When the tidal waves appear
“Nothing is one of my favorites. Julia brings her usual in-depth dominance of the material in an off-beat and cryptic song that, in the end, sets the material world in its rightful place. The groove is infectious as the song takes an unmistakably joyful look at life on Planet Earth.”

This Christmas song was written especially for Julia Wade by Peter Link. It was, in fact, her idea to put these two texts together as one lyric . texts from the book of John in the Bible and from the writings of Mary Baker Eddy. The occasion is the Christmas day church services in Boston where Julia is soloist and performs it with harpist and keyboardist.
In a rather unprecedented move, Julia also decided to share the song with the world before its debut both as a recording and also make it available in digital sheet music for other soloists to sing as well if they so chose. It is an uplifting and joyous celebration of the birth of Jesus and captures the spirit of Christmas both in its music and lyrics.
