Gear up for summer singingPosted on
Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day — you need a full repertoire of songs celebrating America. We have them!
Most of us have heard or sung Joe Liles’ arrangement of “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” with the tone set by the sung “brum brum” of the snares. Get the learning track and be ready to sing at memorial services andm in churches.
Some people consider “God Bless America” (for either men’s voices orwomen’s voices) to “the other national anthem,” and for good reason. This Irving Berlin masterwork perfectly captures the pride that the immigrant songwriter felt for his nation. (Read more fascinating background about this song.) Tracks available.
