America; the Dream by : Oscar Hammerstein II : Richard Rodgers
Written as a celebration of singing for racial and social justice this powerful work sets the 11th stanza of the Langston Hughes poem “Freedom's Plow.” Opening with a quote from “America (My Country; 'Tis of Thee);” the listener is reminded of one of America's most important ideals – freedom. This work serves as a prequel to Rollo's 2009 setting of the poem's 12th and final stanza; also entitled “Freedom's Plow” (00114463). The two pieces can be performed separately or as a set.
