Americans We P.O.D.Henry Fillmore /arr. Christopher W Johnson - CWJ Music House
Publisher Desc. Americans We by Henry Fillmore was first published in 1929 by Carl Fischer Publishing Company (New York) and later renewed with edited versions by Frederick Fennell and Robert Foster. Having gone through many different titles such as The Cincinnati Zoo and Pure Food and Health, Fillmore settled on Americans We. This march exemplifies his desire to make performers and listeners happy with his music. The late Frederick Fennell even said nobody had more fun with his music than Fillmore himself. This version is a slightly simpler take on the original and edited versions. Rhythms have been simplified, effectively eliminating the tongued sixteenth-note patterns. The meter has been modified to 2/4 rather than the standard alla breve. As in the 1929 original, the piece retains the same key signatures and modulations. Measure numbers and all standard symbols are included to improve the rehearsal process and ease of reading. Ranges are reduced, yet all harmonies are true to the original. This is a great piece for developing musicians!
