My Country 'Tis of Thee SSATB

My Country 'Tis of Thee SSATB


The origin of the melody My Country ’Tis of Thee is not known but assumed to generate from Europe, where it is also used for the national anthem of the United Kingdom, God Save the Queen. The text for My Country ’Tis of Thee was written by Samuel Francis Smith and was given its first public performance on July 4th, 1831 at an Independence Day celebration in Boston. It was published a year later under the title America. This arrangement was performed at the Capitol for the 2017 presidential inauguration. Required to be an unaccompanied arrangement, it follows a theme and variations structure where the melody is passed throughout the choir. Due to the nature of the event, this arrangement is deliberately ceremonial in feel. Duration: 2:15
