Notes and Editorial Reviews

Some of America’s favorite patriotic songs have been gathered together on this disc, including “I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy,” “God Bless America,” and “This Land Is Your Land.” Performing on the world’s largest handbell range, The Westminster Concert Bell Choir brings a complex and rich sound to this recording that cannot be matched by other handbell choirs. The Westminster Concert Bell Choir has appeared on several public broadcasting shows, and at high-profile events such as the Christmas tree lighting at Rockafeller Center. The group is conducted by Kathleen Ebling Shaw.
