J:244988:C:The Battle Hymn of the Republic
The Battle Hymn of the Republic
arr. Peter Wilhousky
- Carl Fischer LLC
The Wilhousky setting of this 19th century hymn is possibly the most heartfelt musical pronouncement of American patriotism. Divisi sections in all parts are accessible and still richly expressive with harmonic colors and sweeping dynamic contrasts. Emotional and highly effective, it is a truly magnificent setting that may be performed with band or orchestral accompaniment. It's also the one chosen most often by U.S. military ensembles.
