(American Folk Hymns)Traditional /arr. Keith S. Andrews - Keith Andrews
Publisher Desc. Americana is built around Holy Manna, a beautiful but simple pentatonic melody, and Nettleton, better known as Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing. This dynamic arrangement provides ample opportunity for the sections of your band to shine as the music unfolds, building to a climatic ending with the merging of the two themes. These two songs were important in the flourishing American culture of the 18th and 19th centuries, when they were frequently sung at the revivalist camp meetings. Composer Charles Ives even mentions Nettleton in his boyhood memories: I remember, when I was a boy . . . how the great waves of sound used to come through the treesawhen things like Beulah Land, Woodworth, Nearer My God to Thee, The Shining Shore, Nettleton, In the Sweet Bye and Bye and the like were sung by thousands of alet outa souls.
