Ruth has arranged the "prequel" to her very popular "America the Beautiful" (BL276), skillfully setting "America (My Country 'Tis of Thee)" for three-part mixed chorus and optional baritone. While it is magnificent on its own, an alternate ending that enables a segue into her arrangement of "America the Beautiful" creates a stirring patriotic medley. Duration: 2:55.
