About Variations on America, September 2001
Percy Hall has written a dramatic set of variations on America (My Country 'Tis of Thee), representing the emotional effect on the American psyche of that memorable September day. The four musical pictures (Complacency, Destruction, Grieving, and Resolve) move from G major to D major with some brief chromatic passages. The writing is at times intense and uses glissandi, tremolos, and other effects to demonstrate the trauma and grief of our national family. A triumphant return to the theme represents the enduring and revitalized spirit of Americans.
