"This CD is only average as a whole. It's selection of music includes most of the great traditionally American anthems and songs, but totally ignores others. The music was mostly too loud to my ears also, and I did not like the modernist renditions of some of them. "America The Beautiful" in particular was far too heavy handed and operatic to be enjoyable. Also, just so you know -- there are a total of 18 songs on this CD; I don't know why Amazon only lists 5."
Great song selection and great arrangements

"I bought this to play Ode to the Common Man at a funeral. It worked great. The rest of the music sends chills up your spine. Play it loud. Sing along. I especially liked Battle Hymn and St. Louis Blues March. This music will never go out of style."
