Acclaimed composer Andrew
Balent provides students with the melodies to some of our
country's most beloved and revered songs that speak the name Freedom!
This compilation allows students to further develop skills of solo
performance with music that is challenging but familiar. With this
repertoire at hand, even less experienced performers have the
opportunity to shine at solo festivals, concerts, and community
events. Our national spirit is reaffirmed in songs that will never be
silenced. Performances of pieces in this collection are sure to
become fond musical memories for the student musician.
While the content
of the book is familiar to all of us, the pieces fall into a few
different categories: Songs of the Armed Forces, Patriotic Hymns,
Songs of Reverent Nationalism, and patriotic songs with a popular
flair. Titles include: America, The Beautiful; Battle Hymn of the
Republic; The Stars and Stripes Forever; The Yankee Doodle Boy;
Youre a Grand Old Flag; and more. Enjoy!
