Arlington (Where Giants Lie Sleeping) Composed by Paul Murtha. For Concert Band. Published by Hal Leonard Publishing Corp. (Catalog # 04003496, UPC: 884088911409)

Composed as a tribute to generations of American servicemen and women buried at Arlington National Cemetery near Washington, D.C., this powerful and emotional work is a fitting addition to any memorial occasion or patriotic concert. Offstage trumpets announce the opening theme followed by reverent strains and a solemn statement of My Country, 'Tis of Thee. The piece develops and builds gradually, reaching a heroic climax with the familiar hymn God of Our Fathers before returning to a quiet and reflective mood as the offstage trumpets return. Dur: 7:30
