Katherine Lee Bates: An American Hymn: Arr. (C Effinger): SATB

Vocal Score | Sheet Music & Songbooks
Subtitle A Setting of America the Beautiful
Instrumentation SATB and Piano
Composer Katherine Lee Bates
Composer Samuel A. Ward
Arranger C Effinger
Publisher G. Schirmer
Series Choral

This setting of 'America The Beautiful' was first performed on March 11, 1967, in the Air Force Academy Chapel near Colorado Springs, only a few miles from where, in 1983, Katherine Lee Bates wrote the first lines of her now famous poem, certainly the most beautiful and moving of all hymns to America. The occasion was a concert given by the choral and brass groups of the University of Colorado for the Music Educators National Conference, Southwest Division.

The setting is concieved as a unified, dramatic whole, using melodic motives from the Samuel A. Ward tune in the introduction and connecting sections. Each of the four stanzas is treated differently, their powerful emotion and meaning culminating in the final affirmation and prayer of the last stanza which is sung in unison with descant and full accompaniment.

The work may be performed with an Organ (or Piano accompaniment or with a group of instruments, consisting of 3 Trumpets in Bb, 4 Horns in F, 3 Trombones, Euphonium and Tuba.

Instrumental parts available from the publisher.
