This stirring arrangement of America’s other national anthem, from its poignant first verse to the glorious final bars, encompasses the breadth and majesty of this great nation. Using rich harmonies, the melody is passed between sections, making this the perfect vehicle to teach the importance of listening and blending with each other. This piece will be the perfect choice for those very special occasions!
