The Stars and Stripes Forever (Sousa, John Philip)
By a act of the U. In his autobiography, Marching Along , Sousa wrote that he composed the march on Christmas Day , He was onboard an ocean liner on his way home from a vacation with his wife in Europe and had just learned of the recent death of David Blakely, the manager of the Sousa Band. He composed the march in his head and committed the notes to paper on arrival in the United States. Historically, in show business and particularly in theater and the circus, this piece is called "the Disaster March".
Except for impending disaster, circus bands never played the tune under any circumstances. At least people were killed, though some estimates are much higher.
Performances vary according to the arrangements of individual band directors or orchestrators, especially regarding tempo and the number and sequence of strains employed. A typical performance of the march begins with the four-bar introduction , following with the first strain , which is repeated; then the second strain , which is also repeated; and sometimes both are repeated again if the band is marching in parade or the breakstrain may be interjected and repeated.
Now follows the dominant woodwinds in the first run of the famous Trio strain —familiar to many for the nonsense lyrics : "Be kind to your web-footed friends Here, in some performances, Sousa's patriotic lyrics may be sung in a choral overlay. Then follows the breakstrain, the final strain, and the breakstrain repeated. The final repeats of the Trio the Grandioso render the famous obligato of the piccolo players — joined to a subdued but prominent countermelody by the brass section, then bringing everything to a close with once-more repeats of the grand finale.
Sousa explained to the press that the three themes of the final trio were intended to represent the three regions of the United States. The broad melody, or main theme, portrays the North. The South is represented by the famous piccolo obligato, and the West by the bold countermelody of the trombones.
The three come together in the climax, representing the Union itself. Sousa wrote lyrics to the piece, although they are not as familiar as the music itself. Let martial note in triumph float And liberty extend its mighty hand A flag appears 'mid thunderous cheers, The banner of the Western land. The emblem of the brave and true Its folds protect no tyrant crew; The red and white and starry blue Is freedom's shield and hope.
Let eagle shriek from lofty peak The never-ending watchword of our land; Let summer breeze waft through the trees The echo of the chorus grand. Sing out for liberty and light, Sing out for freedom and the right. Sing out for Union and its might, O patriotic sons. Hurrah for the flag of the free! May it wave as our standard forever, The gem of the land and the sea, The banner of the right. Let tyrants remember the day When our fathers with mighty endeavor Proclaimed as they marched to the fray That by their might and by their right It waves forever.
Hurrah for the flag of the free. May it wave as our standard forever The gem of the land and the sea, The banner of the right. Let tyrants remember the day When our fathers with mighty endeavor Proclaimed as they marched to the fray, That by their might and by their right It waves forever. In the John Church Company published a four-part choral version of the march with a piano arrangement by Elmer Arthur Tidmarsh. The exact origin of the parody is unclear, but versions of it were being quoted as early as the s on college campuses,  and during the s, where it was sung for entertainment by soldiers at the USO.
Be kind to your web-footed friends, For a duck may be somebody's mother. Be kind to your friends in the swamp, Where the weather is very, very damp, Now you may think that this is the end, Well it is!
The last two lines were later used for the theme song of the television series The Berenstain Bears TV series , but with the lyrics changed to:. It was described by Auberon Waugh as the national anthem of the working classes.

After searching this forum I have found relatively little information regarding the Horowitz transcriptions and wanted to reopen this topic since it deserves more attention and discussion among all pianists and rare sheet music collectors. I am not going to post links to the scores as many of these realizations are still available online although it is not in my best interest to share other's scores and distribute or sell them as many sites are now doing.
