Known as the "National Hymn," this historic text was written in 1876 in honor of the centennial anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. Opening and concluding with a choral and (optional) Brass fanfare, this setting is a bold and fresh interpretation suitable for patriotic or general purposes. It provides an opportunity for the congregation to join with the choir in a stirring rendition of this classic hymn.
