Each verse begins with a prayer of thanksgiving for blessings past and closes with a petition for continued provision and edification. Audiences will recognize the flute and piccolo theme from Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever” and the ending from the “1812 Overture” (not necessarily an American piece, but a celebration of victory over tyranny nonetheless). The verses of “The Battle Hymn” each have a distinct flavor, fitting the mood of the words to verses 1, 3, and 5. Included in the download are score and three separate parts for the lever and two pedal harps. Also, performance suggestions are found on the last page. Please choose either Lever Trio or 2P & 1L version.
