Sultana: 1865

Randall D. Standridge
Grade: 3



This programmatic work paints a portrait of the worst maritime disaster in U.S. history. In 1865, after the end of the Civil War, the Sultana was carrying Union soldiers up the Mississippi River when she exploded. This work combines original material with the classic hymn, Abide with Me and two Union songs (We're Coming, Father Abra'am and The Battle Cry of Freedom) to create a dramatic narrative that will deeply impact players and audiences alike. (6:45)

COVID-19 and FJH Recordings
The COVID-19 virus has affected our recording sessions for concert band and full orchestra. In order to ensure the safety of all musicians and to comply with state and federal mandates, FJH has postponed our live recording sessions until a time when we can record safely. In the meantime, we have produced high-quality mockups to help you get a head start on previewing our publications. Nothing will ever replace the incredible musicians who record our music, and we look forward to being together again soon. Thank you for your understanding.
