First published in 1886 for organ, this romantic period piece based on a tune of a popular British song written by John Stafford Smith provides an entertaining tour of the tonal variety available in the Infinity organ, including some of the non-organ voices. “The Star-Spangled Banner” was recognized for official use by the Navy in 1889, and by President Woodrow Wilson in 1916, and was made the national anthem by a congressional resolution on March 3, 1931, which was signed by President Herbert Hoover.
