The Legacy of Randall Thompson
This album is the first in the "Legacy" series, where The United States Army Field Band honors the lives and music of individuals who have made significant contributions to choral music and education. Randall Thompson, an American composer, composed three symphonies and numerous vocal works, however he is most noted for his choral works. Alleluia, a track found on this album, is Thompson's most popular and recognizable choral work. With the "Musical Ambassadors of the Army," and the "voice" of the Field Band bringing the music to life, The Legacy of Randall Thompson is a testament to the prestige and talent of the composer and musicians alike.
