"An American Song" is a collage that portrays the motto "e pluribus unum" by combining several dozen American tunes into a single whole. Fragments of hymns, spirituals, show tunes, jazz standards, country and western ballads, folk songs, and classical compositions are set into the collage like thin, translucent glazes, producing a musical surface that evokes the greatness and the struggle inherent in the American identity, at times clearly and at times dimly, through a haze of memory and association. This is ideal for your next concert performance.

Technical Notes: The score also contains a biography of the composer Alan Fletcher.

Composed By: "An American Song" was composed by Alan Fletcher.

Published By: "An American Song" was published by Boosey & Hawkes.

Series: This piece is part of the series "Boosey & Hawkes Windependence Series".
