This is a full score to Yoon Jae Lee’s arrangement of the Star Spangled Banner for chamber orchestra. The set of parts is available separately.
Throughout history, popular tunes have been adapted to suit the changing tastes and styles of the times. The US national anthem is no different. Originally based on a popular tune called “The Anacreontic Song” in a brisk 6/4 meter, it gradually transformed into the solemn 3/4 meter anthem we now so commonly hear. This newly orchestrated arrangement of the Star Spangled Banner for classical chamber orchestra is in the period style of the late 18th century and based on the first printed edition of the anthem in 1814. Upbeat and refreshing, it reflects the optimistic spirit of a young nation with a bright future ahead of it. Audiences everywhere will be delighted by this historically informative yet entertaining rendition of the US national anthem!
