Here are America's two greatest, and most sung and performed, patriotic anthems. Both songs are included in their entirety as separate arrangements, and each selection is presented twice, once in a higher key and once in a lower key. America the Beautiful has versions in B-flat and in C Major. The Star Spangled Banner is presented in both A-flat and B-flat Major. All the verses are included, with a separate vocal line above the piano part, as well as chord letters above the melody line. Additionally there is excellent historical information for each song included. The piano arrangement is basic, yet full, harmonically, with octave reaches. These are perfect for inclusion in patriotic functions.
