Sing some cool arrangements of the National anthem! Beginning with a beautiful unison, Tsunenori 'Lee' Abe's arrangement of 'The Star-Spangled Banner' goes into rich harmony without going too far away from the original. Mark Burnell's 'Star Spangled Banner' is an adventurous a cappella version as performed by Cooler by the Lake for the Chicago Bulls and White Sox. Kerry Marsh's 'Star Spangled Banner' uses some modal re-harmonization, some slight meter shifts and has a rousing finish, with some surprises. This chart sounds harder to sing than it is, as the voice leading is very logical and smooth but the chords are wonderful. Jason Heald's 'The Star-Spangled Banner' is a swinging version of the true "old standard". This is a very rhythmic a cappella SATB arrangement with a strong gospel feel. The chart opens with a soprano solo and concludes with bold sophisticated harmonies. A terrific opener or closer for any concert or event! America The Beautiful, by Mike Dana is a heartfelt arrangement set in a contemporary harmonic framework, and features brief solos for a soulful tenor, and after a modulation for the second verse, alto. The rubato a cappella setting allows for a naturally fluid interpretation that works equally well for jazz singers, chamber groups, and concert choirs at both high school and university levels
