This setting of Son of Liberty, based on a poem by Lynwood G. Cash, includes many historical references to events of our citizens’ patriotism: Boston Harbor, Lexington, Concord, the Continental Congress, the trenches of Europe, Iwo Jima, Normandy, Korea, Vietnam, the twin towers, Iraq, and Afghanistan. The text addresses the issue of our patriotism today: Son of liberty, where are you now? Where are you in the democratic process, government, and decision-making? These poignant lyrics invite us to look deeply into patriotism’s definition, its costs, and our commitment to a “more perfect Union.”
