This unforgettable arrangement of the patriotic song "America the Beautiful" utilizes a solo cellist who acts as a sort of thread sewing a quilt, stitching the rows through the song itself. In the second verse, the choir abandons the melody all together (yet unnoticeably) to vocally depict "shining alabaster cities gleaming." It is a short, yet deeply impactful arrangement that lends true artistry and heart to the act of musical patriotism. The arranger has modeled the cello part after a Bach cello suite, making it accessible to play for any seasoned cellist.
