America the Beautiful
arr. Mark Hayes
- Alfred Music Publishing
This is definitely one of the finest arrangements ever written of the popular patriotic work. Mark's approach is fresh, crisp and powerful, featuring optional narration on writings by Jefferson, Lincoln and Martin Luther King. The vocals are not difficult, but the overall effect is positively stunning, especially with brass (3 trumpets, 2 trombones, 2 horns and percussion) or the recorded brass accompaniment. A very strong choice for concert or festival performance, this is destined to be a standard in the choral repertoire for many years to come!
