5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best patriotic collections around... July 7, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I originally purchased this on CD a few years ago. After watching this year's broadcast of the Pops from the Esplanade in Boston (and not being all that impressed with it), I pulled this CD out and decided to give it a listen. In hearing it again for the first time in a few years, I realized how well this material continues to stand up. The Boston Pops have always done an excellent job putting together albums of holiday music; their Christmas CDs are among the most listened to in my collection. Even though this is no longer available on CD, it is still available through MP3 downloads, and it is well worth your money.

There were two surprises of this album for me. The first was the inclusion of "The Gettysburg Address." Adapted from the film "Gettysburg," and featuring author David McCullough (the voice of "The Civil War") narrating, this was one of the more surprising tracks. It is also one of the most moving. The music, composed by Randy Edelman, compliments Lincoln's words wonderfully, and McCullough's voice brings out the full beauty of the address, a beauty that is sometimes lost when reading the words on the page (especially in a history class).

The second was "The City of New Orleans." I kind of ignored this song when I first listened to this album. But on subsequent listens, I paid more attention to the words and understood better what the song was about. The song tells of a ride on the City of New Orleans train line from Chicago to New Orleans. The lyrics perfectly capture a bygone (or at least quickly disappearing) part of American life. When folks traveled by train years ago, it may have taken longer, but they got to see some of the true majesty of our land. Can you really do that on a plane, thousands of feet in the air?

4.0 out of 5 stars Quintessential for the 4th of July November 27, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The CD is quintessential in its songs and its orchestra. When you think 4th of July, Boston Pops comes to mind. They are iconic, classic and still fresh. It is a showcase of the range and depth of their talent and it's a fitting tribute to America.
