Home Of The Brave stems from a final sentence in the Star-Spangled Banner – that the United States’ flag would forever stand. John M. Pasternak takes a contemporary approach to the Star-
Spangled Banner as the melody line is woven through various instruments as solo lines
on top of new and intriguing harmonies. The work culminates with the traditional playing of “O say does that Star-Spangled Banner” and then fades into the distance.
