Abraham Lincoln's Birthday (2010 Edition)

For your listening pleasure.

A Lincoln Portrait by Aaron Copland

Part 1:

Part II:

This is what Abraham Lincoln said:
As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master. This expresses my idea of democracy. Whatever differs from this, to the extent of the difference, is no democracy.
Happy Lincoln's Birthday everyone.

Note: I know I posted this only a few months ago but it's such a great piece that I had to repost. And for you trumpet geeks in the audience, I am pretty sure that's Gerard Schwartz on lead trumpet.
