Battle Hymn of the Republic composed by Mark Hayes. For SATB choir, piano accompaniment (Concert band). Patriotic. Octavo. Published by Heritage Music Press (LO.15-2521H).
Mark Hayes's stately and majestic setting of this patriotic favorite is truly inspiring and not to be missed! Both the men and women are featured separately on the verses, and the "a cappella" treatment of the lush, choral sonorities in the fourth verse is absolutely stunning. Equally effective in both secular and sacred arenas.
