Francis Scott Key's famous poem “The Star-Spangled Banner” was sung to dozens of different tunes. This simple arrangement, published in 1816 by Carr's Music Store in Baltimore, is the earliest appearance in print of “The Star-Spangled Banner” set to the tune “To Anacreon in Heaven,” which is now our national anthem.

Until “The Star-Spangled Banner” was designated the official national anthem in 1931, the United States had a second national anthem called “Hail Columbia.” The music for “Hail Columbia” came from The President's March, written by Philip Pfeil (or Phile) to commemorate Washington's inauguration. The words were written by Joseph Hopkinson (the son of Frances Hopkinson, mentioned above).
The Stars and Stripes Forever is Sousa's best-known march and serves as the official march of the United States. We've included an arrangement for piano six-hands adapted from Sousa's published six-hand version.
