America the Brave the Free
Based on "America," "Columbia the Gem of the Ocean," and "America, the Beautiful" this setting gets off to a rousing fanfare. The score is "black" with notes indicating a thick texture that keeps all ringers involved. Special techniques are scattered about for emphasis, and upward key changes keep the excitement at pitch. The 74-measure arrangement ends on a solid martellato! It is scored in the keys of D Major, Eb Major, and Ab Major.
