Here is a full concert transcription for piano of one of America’s most stirring, majestic and famous patriotic hymns, "Battle Hymn of the Republic," which was composed during the Civil War era (ca. 1860). In addition to chord names and pedal indications, this arrangement includes the full, unaltered original lyrics (all five verses plus chorus).

I have dedicated this arrangement to all the men and women, both living and deceased, who have honorably, courageously and faithfully served the United States in the armed forces–in grateful thanksgiving for their many sacrifices on our behalf, and with a prayer that we will truly be "one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

This is a real show piece that places some considerable demands on both the performer and the instrument. Although fairly challenging to play, it is worth the effort to learn. I love playing it myself, and it is one of my all-time favorite pieces of music. If you’re on a PC running Windows, I invite you to use Scorch and take a listen. (One of these days I will figure out how to upload an MP3 file for the benefit of mobile device users.)

Thanks for stopping by to check out my music. I hope you enjoy it. If you have any questions or comments, please contact me by email.
