"Battle Hymn of the Old Republic," is a track from saxophonist Brian McCarthy's striking recording The Better Angels Of Our Nature. The Better Angels Of Our Nature takes its title from the immortal words of Abraham Lincoln's first inaugural address. The speech, addressed in large part to the citizens of the Southern states, was offered in a spirit of reconciliation and hope for reunification with the seceded Confederacy. McCarthy's music locates the better angels at the heart of music representing the North, the South, and the African-American slaves who weren't considered full citizens but whose fate hung in the balance of the brutal conflict.
