This lovely patriotic ballad setting is the latest addition to Joel Raney's exciting series of piano/organ duets, with SATB choir entering at the conclusion of the prelude for an optional choral introit. This arrangement was first conceived in the aftermath of the events of 9-11, combining "America, the Beautiful" with Chopin's gorgeous piano etude in E Major, Opus 10, No. 3, and together they make an emotionally powerful presentation. Both keyboard parts and a reproducible page with the choral part are included. An optional 3-7 octave handbell part (w/opt. 3-7 octave handchimes) and a full conductor's score are available separately.
