On Order



Complementing Shearer and Shearer's useful one-volume source of information-- State Names, Seals, Flags, and Symbols-- this book provides the music and lyrics for the official songs adopted by the state governments. Arranged alphabetically by state, each song has a single vocal line over a piano accompaniment, with one verse only under the vocal line and remaining verses appearing separately. Each entry includes the date the song was adopted, the name of the composer, and in some instances, a brief history of the song. The book will be a useful reference for those wanting to perform a state song or to find the official songs of other states.

Author Notes

M.J. BRISTOW is an independent researcher.
