Origin of ‘An American Trilogy’
‘An American Trilogy’ is a popular song written 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, as a matter of fact, to receive the honour at the time.
Moreover, the song was recorded by Elvis Presley in 1972. It then became a regular feature of his concert performances.
Of course, a surefire endorsement. Not to mention universal popularity.
American Trilogy is a medley of three 19th century songs. “Dixie”, “All My Trials”, and “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.” The latter 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.
Additionally, it features on an album by Morriston Orpheus Choir.
Of course, Alwyn Humphreys was the musical director at that time.
Furthermore, it’s estimated that over 465 versions of “An American Trilogy” are available by different artists.
