Library of Congress Patriotic Music


Here is their description:

Patriotic Melodies tells the stories behind many of the songs that have now become part of the American national heritage. Here you can listen to Kate Smith sing "God Bless America," page through a manuscript of Copland's "Fanfare for the Common Man" or learn about the origins of our national anthem -- "The Star Spangled Banner." A combination of hymns, national songs, music of the theater, radio and television, military themes, and poetry, all of this music demonstrates that while over history many things have changed, this expression of pride and hope remain a constant part of the American experience.
