America the Beautiful

Instrumentation/Voicing: 
unison treble with piano

This arrangement of “America the Beautiful” is an effort to de-politicize the effect of the song and emphasize the imagery of the poetry by setting in for children’s voices to the simple, quiet beauty of J.S. Bach’s C Major Prelude.
