Arr. Jay Althouse and Mark Williams
Alfred Concert Band
4 (Medium Difficult)
This stirring arrangement of the patriotic standard is based on Jay Althouse's popular Alfred choral arrangement. It is equally effective as an accompaniment to the published SATB, SAB, SSA and 2-part choral versions or, by playing cued parts, as a band-alone piece. Four verses are presented, including a beautiful rubato section reharmonized with thick jazz voicings featuring a cappella voices (or your woodwind section). The powerful brass fanfares and dramatic woodwind flourishes will serve as an impressive finale for any concert program! InstruPax includes: director's score, 3 trumpets, 2 French horns, 3 trombones, tuba, percussion, timpani.
