Battle Cry Of Freedom, The
From Plank Road Publishingadapted/arr. Paul Jennings
This boisterously patriotic song was written by George Frederick Root in 1862 in the midst of America's Civil War. Because the original lyrics were not so kid-friendly, we have adapted them for this arrangement.
Our arrangement captures the feel of an army band expanded to be an orchestra. It has a big concert opening and a big ending. But when it settles into the verse part of the tune, you'll hear folk instruments of then and now – banjo, guitar, and mandolin.
As a choral piece, this can easily be done in unison singing only part 1. But chorally, it is arranged as a 2-part piece with a further simple divisi at the end. Rehearsal tracks for both parts are included in the kit. (from Music K-8, Vol. 25, No. 4)
