Description: Just tracing the origins of these band-transcriptions can be fun: America is a transcription by William E. Rhoads from William Schumann's orchestration of E. Power Biggs' edition of Ives' organ original; They are There! is James B. Sinclair's transcription of Lou Harrison's orchestration of Ives' original song's orchestral sketch. And on with other arrangements by Jonathan Elkus, Keith Brion and Kevin Singleton with eight full pages of notes and documentation by Elkus (director of bands emeritus at UC Davis). "The President's Own" United States Marine Band; Colonel Timothy W. Foley.
