Chester (Overture For Band) Composed by William Schuman. For Concert Band. Published by Merion Music, Inc. (Catalog # 145-40000, UPC: 680160031344)

Chester is based on the third movement of Schuman's New England Triptych , considered to be his most famous work. Written in 1956-57, the tune is based on a 1778 anthem by William Billings which was adopted by the Continental Army and sung around campfires during the American Revolution. Its words express the burning desire for freedom which sustained the colonists through the difficult years of the Revolution.
