America the Beautiful composed by Samuel Ward. Arranged by Linda Spevacek. For SSA choir. Patriotic. Octavo. Published by Heritage Music Press (LO.15-1360H).
This expressive and sensitive arrangement opens with a treble solo, returning later to the solo on the chorus, accompanied by the SSA voices. From the quiet splendor of the opening, this piece builds to a strong and dramatic conclusion. The availability of additional voicings in the same key makes this an excellent choice for combined choir performances.
