Notes & Reviews:

This CD contains both ADD and DDD recordings.

God Bless America: The Ultimate Patriotic Album gathers over an hour's worth of official and unofficial American anthems, including the Eric Rogers Choir's performances of "The Star Spangled Banner" and "America (My Country Tis of Thee)." Marilyn Horne sings "You're a Grand Old Flag" and "God Bless America," while the Eastman Wind Ensemble contributes renditions of "Yankee Doodle" and "The Stars and Stripes Forever." "Washington Post," "The Caissons Go Rolling Along," "Anchors Aweigh," and "The Air Force Song" are some of the other highlights of this very traditional, very patriotic collection. ~ Heather Phares

Includes thru' the years 1776-1969 for band by various composers.
