Grade 2.5

Duration: 6:04

This patriotic show has hints of traditional Christian folk music. There is a brief percussion intro on “Yankee Doodle” followed by an up-tempo “America the Beautiful” fanfare.  Then we contrast with several variations on “Simple Gifts” which closes in big dramatic fashion.  Next, we hear “Amazing Grace”, also with some contrasting variations.  We close with an exciting medley of “Stars and Stripes” (with a reprise of “Simple Gifts”) and a brief nod to “Battle Hymn of the Republic.”
