Battle Hymn of the Republic
melody by William Steffe
lyrics by Julia Ward Howe
arr. Charlie Peterson
It starts out slow & stately at half tempo with pyramid entrances then shifts to a standard slow march
swing/shuffle in 12/8. The trumpets take turns playing the melody then the trombone takes over with
the horn in harmony. The tuba gets to play melody on a refrain then the trumpets take over at the
modulation. There is an optional Reveille intro, Taps ending & Assembly interlude for those who
want some bugle call thematic flavor thrown in.
Listen to a live sound clip -- without the optional intro..
