The chord progressions are very unique… and absolutely gorgeous!
I did not have time to prepare in advance an Independence Day special for church as I had originally planned. I found this arrangement on Thursday night, and had to play Sunday morning; I just played the beginning Star Spangled Banner movement- which can 100% stand on its own as a solo.
I played through measure 35… continuing the broken chord for another measure, and ended with some notes of the chord w/ and octave in the left hand.
One of the best Star Spangled Banner piano solo arrangements I have ever heard… (even if it was arranged by a British guy LOL 😉)
This is an awesome arrangement. The way the two songs are combined in the last part of this song is brilliant. I highly recommend this piece.
