Lincoln Portrait was commissioned by Andre Kostelanetz for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra in 1942. A stirring tribute to an eminent American, it includes fragments of songs from the Civil War era, sweeping original themes, and a narration drawn from Lincoln's own words. This transcription by Walter Beeler has become a staple in the repertoire for wind bands, and provides an impressive way to help celebrate the 200th anniversary of Lincoln's birth. Audio used with permission from the Mark Records CD: Northshore Concert Band Live at the 2001 Midwest Clinic; John Lynch, conductor; Dr. William Warfield, narrator (Score Only - 48006216/$15.50)

"I placed my order for an accordion on a Sunday morning before President's Day, expecting the typical delays associated with weekend and holiday orders. Then, to my surprise, the accordion arrived on Tuesday right after President's Day. I was very pleased, not only for the quality of service, but also for the quality of the instrument. The sound is beautiful, and I will play it in church this coming Sabbath. Many thanks"

"Your service and products are absolutely outstanding! I've used Musician's Friend & Music 123 and they can't touch your firm! It's good to know there's still a musical merchant that cares for its customers! Members of Harmony Central recommend you guys. I read their reviews and I'm glad I did. Thanks again & have a great day!"
