The Reflections books are recognized for having arrangements that sound rich and full without making undue demands on the pianist. The tradition continues with these great-sounding patriotic songs. The collection contains 16 titles, each an important part of the American heritage. Sid Richardson's arrangements are sensitive to the character of the piece: the reflective songs are gentle, but the strong-spirited songs are full of energy. Appropriate for a variety of performance venues, and great for getting improvisation skills 'into the fingers.' This is a collection that will quickly prove its worth. "Columbia, the Gem of the Ocean," "You're a Grand Old Flag," "Battle Hymn of the Republic," and "I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy" are Federation Festivals 2016-2020 selections.
