Lest We Forget

(A Fantasia on Civil War Songs of the North and South) Text: Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address (1865)
Music by Elliot Del Borgo
Grade: 3.5

This extensive work is powerful and emotionally riveting. Slight variations of Civil War songs are recognizable while providing new material to keep the performer and listener engaged in the music. The piece changes style and tempo several times, ending with a very sensitive underscoring as a narrator recites Lincoln's second inaugural address before a heroic ending. (9:30)
