"ALL SAINTS GO MARCHING IN"
Mixed Media on Canvas. 70cm x100cm
This song was first recorded on May 13, 1938 by Louis Armstrong.
The song is apocalyptic, taking much of its imagery from the Book of Revelation, but excluding its more horrific depictions of the Last Judgment.
As the hymn expresses the wish to go to Heaven, picturing the saints going in (through the Pearly Gates), it is entirely appropriate for funerals.
