Origin of ‘An American Trilogy’
‘An American Trilogy’ is a popular song composed by country songwriter Mickey Newbury. In fact, Newbury recorded the song himself and achieved chart success.
As a result, Newbury was eventually inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. The youngest person to receive the honour at the time.
Moreover, the song was recorded by Elvis Presley in 1972. It became a regular feature of his concert performances. Of course, a surefire endorsement. Not to mention universal popularity.
First of all, it’s a medley of three 19th century songs. “Dixie”, “All My Trials”, and “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”, the marching song of the Union Army during the Civil War.
Arrangement for Male Choirs
Consequently, the arrangement for male choirs is by Alwyn Humphreys, the well known choral conductor and television presenter.
Also, it features on an album by Morriston Orpheus Choir when Alwyn Humphreys was the musical director.
Furthermore, it’s estimated that over 465 versions of “An American Trilogy” are recorded by different artists.
