Tune Name: Anthem

Difficulty Level: M


Often referred to as the “Black National Anthem” this hymn melody by John Rosamond Johnson (brother of the text’s author, NAACP leader James Weldon Johnson) is given an energetic and creative treatment by M. Roger Holland II. The piano writing is accessible, lying very naturally under the hands. Driving rhythmic changes add interest, leading the piece to a dramatic and grand conclusion.
