Barbershop Harmony Society

Hymn to Freedom

| /
Harriette Hamilton / Oscar Peterson / Jim Clancy
SATB a cappella
This arrangement was premiered by 2018 BHS International Chorus champion Vocal Majority to conclude their “swan song” set at the 2019 Barbershop Harmony Society International Convention in Salt Lake City, UT. Clancy's arrangement of this Oscar Peterson composition is simple, elegant, and powerful. Harriette Hamilton's lyric beautifully captures and communicates the spirit of inclusion and harmony of Peterson's composition, which has become a core characteristic of the BHS “Everyone in Harmony” initiative.
