Volume 1 of our Patriotic collection contains four classic patriotic tunes and three complete Sousa marches. Altogether this has 15 minutes of music that both you and your audience are sure to love.

This version is arranged for 3, 4, or 5 bass instruments as listed below. We also have a version for 3, 4, or 5 treble instruments, and another version with 3-7 mixed parts that can expand all the way to a full band.

To demonstrate the flexibility of this collection, the audio clip has "America the Beautiful" performed as a bassoon quintet and a trombone trio.

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.

Brass trio, quartet, and quintet.
Woodwind trio, quartet, and quintet.
