The American Spirit Composed by Mark Hayes. For SATB. Published by Shawnee Press Inc. (Catalog # 35028798, UPC: 884088879334)

Written for a combined chorus performance at Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center with the composer conducting, this major work in three 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.
