The American Spirit

The American Spirit

Series: Mark Foster Publisher: Mark Foster Format: Download FULL ORCHESTRATION Composer: Mark Hayes Author: Pamela Stewart

Written for a combined chorus performance at Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center with the composer conducting, this major work in 3 movements is both poignant and inspiring. Drawing inspiration from the words of Henry David Thoreau and quoting Simple Gifts, Zion's Walls, and Materna, this is a classic Mark Hayes composition combining stylistic, contemporary writing with a classical foundation. With piano accompaniment, this will be powerful but with either the full orchestration or the chamber orchestration, it will be unforgettable.

  • The Spirit Of Equality And Justice
  • The Spirit Of Optimism and Dreams
