All Music Guide - Heather Phares
God Bless America: The Ultimate Patriotic Album gathers over an hour's worth of official and unofficial American anthems, including the Eric Rogers Choir's performances of "The Star Spangled Banner" and "America My Country Tis of Thee." Marilyn Horne sings "You're a Grand Old Flag" and "God Bless America," while the Eastman Wind Ensemble contributes renditions of "Yankee Doodle" and "The Stars and Stripes Forever." "Washington Post," "The Caissons Go Rolling Along," "Anchors Aweigh," and "The Air Force Song" are some of the other highlights of this very traditional, very patriotic collection.
