Synopsis

Product Description
Spirit of America, the award-winning band from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, is proud to present a new recording, Call to Freedom: The Music of a Great Nation. Featuring works by American composers, from John Philip Sousa to Charles Ives, this CD is a musical tribute to the nation s freedom keepers, and a reminder of the privileges of freedom we enjoy.

This collection of patriotic music reflects the gamut of American history and character from the victories in times of war expressed in Morton Gould s American Salute, to the light-hearted victories of the baseball diamond captured by John Philip Sousa in The National Game. Listeners will thrill to spirited renditions of the Armed Forces marches, and to visions of splendor in Carmen Dragon s America the Beautiful. On the more serious side, the program also includes God of Our Fathers arranged by Claude T. Smith, and Heroes Lost and Fallen by David Gillingham. Spirit of America closes with the beloved march, Stars and Stripes Forever, by John Philip Sousa.
