Brentwood Choral: America, the Beautiful

America, the Beautiful

Simple Series / Arranger: Luke Gambill

In 1893, Katharine Lee Bates had been on an extended holiday when she visited Pike's Peak in Colorado. That night she told her traveling companions that many countries had failed because, although they may have been great, they had not been good. She said, Unless we are willing to crown our greatness with goodness, and our bounty with brotherhood, our beloved America may go the same way. It was then that she penned a poem that would become one of our nation's best-loved hymns, America, the Beautiful.

America! America!

God shed His grace on thee,

And crown thy good with brotherhood

From sea to shining sea!

America, the Beautiful, from Brentwood Music's Simple Series, is a stirring 20-minute celebration of this great land, designed to inspire your choir and congregation through the beauty, blessing and greatness of these wonderful 50 United States of America!
