Volume 1 of our Patriotic collection contains four classic patriotic tunes and three complete Sousa marches. Altogether this has seven songs and over 14 minutes of music that both you and your audience are sure to love. Each song is also available separately from the publisher link above.

These arrangements can be played with anywhere from 3 to 7 parts, with a great deal of flexibility in instrumentation. This makes it ideal for bands of all types (full orchestra, string orchestra, chamber orchestra, school, community, or professional). This is one of the most versatile collections you'll ever use!

The songs included in Volume 1 are:
The Star-Spangled Banner (US National Anthem), by John Stafford Smith.
America the Beautiful, by Samuel Ward.
Battle Hymn of the Republic ("Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory").
My Country, 'Tis of Thee ("America", known as "God Save the King/Queen" in England).
Stars and Stripes Forever, by John Philip Sousa.
Washington Post March, by John Philip Sousa.
Semper Fidelis, by John Philip Sousa.

Each song is in its original key, so it is easy to combine these with your own choir or piano/organ parts. The difficulty level ranges from medium-easy to medium-advanced. The arrangements respect the original style of the composers while greatly expanding the instrument flexibility.

This collection contains a full score, as well as individual parts in all the appropriate clefs and transpositions to support the following ensembles:
Brass trio, quartet, quintet, and sextet.
