"Spirit of Freedom" has received critical acclaim in all the major publications (Fanfare, American Record Guide, etc.) Several of the tracks have been featured on a PBS series called "Freedom: A History of US." In addition, those same tracks have been featured on a soundtrack recording and companion anthology released by SONY records. Gothic's original recording "The Spirit of Freedom" is the best anthology available of patriotic songs and the only complete recording containing all four verses of the Star Spangled Banner.
The history of our country is written in our song, and what a variety of song it is! War songs, tunes from Appalachia, gospel—all have been mined over the years by composers and arrangers of every era. This recording offers a varied program of these American works, from the well known (Shenandoah, Buffalo Gals) to the less familiar, expertly arranged for choir and sung by this nationally acclaimed American choir.
