    Program Notes
    In general Amber Waves is a celebration of American freedom inspired by several brilliant landscapes and sights from around our beautiful and blessed land. There are also several patriotic melodies heard in this composition – some are disguised or varied. Most notably what I view as the universal hymn of freedom, My Country 'Tis of Thee is the cornerstone of the work.

    My Country 'Tis of Thee
    Written by: Samuel Francis Smith

    My country, 'tis of thee,
    Sweet land of Liberty,
    Of thee I sing;
    Land where my fathers died,
    Land of the pilgrim's pride!
    From ev'ry mountain side,
    Let freedom ring!

    My native country thee
    Land of the noble free,
    Thy name I love.
    I love thy rocks and rills,
    Thy woods and templed hills;
    My heart with rapture thrills,
    Like that above.

    Let music swell the breeze,
    And ring from all the trees,
    Sweet freedom's song.
    Let mortal tongues awake;
    Let all that breathe partake;
    Let rocks their silence break,
    the sound prolong.

    Our fathers' God, to Thee,
    Author of Liberty,
    To Thee we sing.
    Long may our land be bright,
    With freedom's holy light;
    Protect us by Thy might,
    Great God, our King!
