    I found it disgusting. The National Anthem has no need for a DHC nor a descant. I've complained before about the way some pop musicians butcher The National Anthem, but I'd expect a Military group to present a more meat and potatoes version....

    FWIW this is a great 3-tpt anthem below... In-tune, in-time, and in-tone. Great sound, and style!




    IMO I didn't real feel the OP version.

    Arturo still has hands down my favorite tpt version of the anthem!

    too pretty ...sounds like a Christmas carol.

    I like a more "military" flare myself.
