Arlington National Cemetery is a United States military cemetery in Arlington, Virginia. It dates back to the Civil War and is the burial ground for more than 400,000 active duty service members, veterans, and family members. The cemetery contains several memorials, including the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and it is the final resting place for Presidents William Howard Taft and John F. Kennedy.
To honor this hallowed place, we created the song "Arlington." It begins simply and reverently with a brass choir. Once the singers start, the accompaniment becomes a stirring full orchestra, which at times features an expressive trumpet solo. At the coda, the piece hints at the famous bugle call "Taps."
The second vocal part is optional, but it really does add to the drama and emotion of the piece. To help your singers learn the part, the kit includes an isolated part 2 rehearsal track. (from Music K-8, Vol. 28, No. 5)
