f you are working with a trumpet choir, this is a must have!. The ensemble is divided into two sections for an antiphonal affect. I found this by accident and have been very excited to have it performed. I have included his lyrics which would be helpful when introducing this piece. This is a wonderful composition from the Civil War Period and should be in every trumpet ensemble's library.

All Hail to the Flag of Freedom!

The Pride of our Glorious Land,

Beneath its broad Stripes United,

Unconquer'd forever we'll stand.



CHORUS [sung after each verse]

Shout Huzza! for the Flag,

For the Flag of Free and Brave;

Long may it wave o'er land and sea,

Emblem of Right and Liberty,

Shout Huzza! for the Flag,

For the Flag of Free and Brave;

Long may it wave o'er land and sea,

Emblem of Right and Liberty,

Rise Freemen, our Flag upholding,

With valor determin'd and strong;

Its bright Constellation unfolding,

Where Liberty battles with Wrong.

Those Stars and those Stripes, shall ever

Triumphantly wave o'er the foe;

And he who their Union would sever,

The doom of the traitor shall know!
