American Tears

From Plank Road Publishing

by Teresa Jennings

While this moving anthem was used by thousands of schools for September 11 memorial performances, it is also appropriate for any time you want to honor the sacrifice of our heroes from today and yesterday, including Veterans Day, Memorial Day, or programs for local fire and police personnel. It was written to feature a soloist with choir, but it is also quite effective with just unison choir. The melody is simple but poignant, and it has already become one of Teresa's most talked about compositions. Be sure to hear it online if you haven't already done so. You will understand the power it brings. (from Music K-8, Vol. 13, No. 1)
