Program Notes

Robert W. Smith's extremely popular series based on the Ukrainian Bell Carol continues with this setting in an American style. Starting with a rousing Sousa quote, the carol continues with a driving rock groove. The second statement has the melody to America, the Beautiful cleverly woven into it, providing a very unique and creative teaching opportunity.
