The Hymn! is a contemporary a cappella arrangement of some of the most influential and inclusive American patriotic hymns: My Country Tis of Thee, Battle Hymn of the Republic, and Lift Every Voice and Sing. This arrangement is an epic montage from the inspirational pen of none other than prolific choral arranger and composer Stacey V. Gibbs. You can hear and feel the true humanity in the 12/8 rhythmics pulse, supported by a single snare drum—the drum representing the drum major for justice and peace throughout the entire work. Excellent choral writing with a meaningful message for our times. Suitable for high school level singers to professional choirs.
