The National Anthem





These harmonies and the respectful way this is sung gives me chills.
The Star Spangled Banner should always be sung with reverence and joy
and with very little 'vocal gymnastics' or unnecessary embellishments.
I am always saddened when I hear singers take the anthem 
out of it's traditional context and style and make it about themselves
and not the piece.
These gentlemen do it right.
( I have always loved 'barbershop style' harmony.)

Wow. Just wow. I love those harmonies also. I also love Caitlyn's from many moons ago. Don't know where I'd find it now...
