A House Divided

Brian Balmages
Grade: $G$



Based on Abraham Lincoln’s famous speech in 1858 about slavery, this contemplative work weaves original material with America to depict the tension in the House of Representatives. Often, the melody to America is altered melodically and harmonically as moments of anger, rage and fear dissolve into “quirky” moments of patriotism. The end of the work is magical, as the words “let freedom ring” are sung by the ensemble to leave the audience speechless. (5:00)
