"America the Beautiful" has been called "an expression of patriotism at its finest." It conveys an attitude of appreciation and gratitude for the nation's extraordinary physical beauty and abundance, without triumphalism.
This setting for brass quintet is a chorale version using harmonization and passing tones to make the hymn a bit more interesting to perform and listen to.
