Lincoln Portrait Composed by Aaron Copland. Arranged by Walter Beeler. For Concert Band. Published by Boosey & Hawkes Inc. (Catalog # 48006215, UPC: 073999280210)

Lincoln Portrait was commissioned by Andre Kostelanetz for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra in 1942. A stirring tribute to an eminent American, it includes fragments of songs from the Civil War era, sweeping original themes, and a narration drawn from Lincoln's own words. This transcription by Walter Beeler has become a staple in the repertoire for wind bands, and provides an impressive way to help celebrate the 200th anniversary of Lincoln's birth.
