America the Beautiful (Single)

In a former time, America was the hope of mankind. It promised no less than that life would be led freely and justly. Free men and women dedicated themselves to a set of principles that would make such life manifest and durable. For the sake of these principles - for the proper love of country -  they might weary themselves and suffer lavish risk and injury.

We fear that that hope has been forfeit, the promises abandoned, those principles traduced. We fear they have been supplanted by grotesquery, by greed and jealousy, by threats and sneers and lies, lies upon lies upon lies.

We had an idea, I, C.J. Camerieri (trumpet, french horn) and Marcus Rojas (euphonium, tuba), that by calling to mind that former time, we might give courage to ourselves and to others who might wish to recover its spirit and mandate. - Chaim Tannenbaum
