** Stanton's Staff Selection - 2004 **
This outstanding patriotic piece has a true story as its inspiration. Artist Ray Sorenson of Greenfield, Iowa discovered a rock that had, for some time, been painted with graffiti. He decided that the rock should be properly painted once and for all, and did so with truly remarkable skill. He emblazoned the sides of the rock with battle scenes from our nation's history, including Washington's crossing of the Delaware and a scene from 9/11. Fragments of speeches from American presidents are included and an American flag drapes the rock - now known as "Freedom Rock". The piece opens with a military sounding march that leads to a solemn section over which a narrator reads the speeches seen on the rock while a muted trumpet plays Taps in the background. The initial march then returns with fragments of numerous patriotic melodies juxtaposed with the original melody including: The Battle Hymn of the Republic, The Battle Cry of Freedom, Yankee Doodle, The Girl I Left Behind Me, The Caisson Song, The Marines' Hymn, Anchors Aweigh, and Chester. Eventually the Battle Hymn emerges and a brief statement of America the Beautiful brings the piece to a rousing conclusion.
