Battle Hymn of the Republic (Gr. 4)
is a stirring work which begins with an imaginative introduction using fragments of the theme. As the work develops, the tonality also changes between major and minor keys evolving into the next section, using the familiar Civil War melody "When Johnny Comes Marching Home". An off stage cadenza follows with muffled drums and muted trumpets. The triumphant finale is sparked by a modulation with a strident rhythmic background. This is a grand concert finale especially fitting for patriotic events.

It has not been performed or published since 1954, but was repremiered on January 3, 1998 in Warrensburg, Missouri. The members of the West Central District of the Missouri Music Educators Association had this work dedicated to Russell Coleman for his years and commitment to their District of MMEA. Russ and Claude were dear colleagues and friends who worked together for the promotion of music education throughout the world. This work is especially challenging for the trumpet section and will be a must for all students and directors to perform, as well as a stirring march for audiences.
