Battle Hymn of the Republic

OK, you've got to listen to this, I got an email today and it was a multi-forwarded message but the end result is this recording of the US Army Band and Chorus welcoming Pope Benedict XVI at the White House Rose Garden ceremony on 15 April. There are also high school kids. At the conclusion listen to the high notes on the trumpet . . . Played by a high school kid!

One of the fathers recorded it, added some graphic enhancements to the recording, and posted it on the web. The song, of course, is the 'Battle Hymn Of The Republic.' Be prepared . . . It will definitely send a few shivers up your spine. I can never get through listening to or singing this song without tears.

God Bless America!
