Celebrate America: A Collection of 35 Patriotic Songs, The O’Neill Brothers (Shamrock-n-Roll).

The piano-playing O’Neill Brothers—Tim ‘94 and Ryan ’97—offer arrangements of such classics as “America the Beautiful,” " Amazing Grace," “My Old Kentucky Home,” “We Shall Overcome” and “Morning Has Broken” on this two-CD set. The brothers have stripped the songs of fanfare, says Tim O’Neill, to “let people hear them the way they were originally intended to be heard—as moving, emotional and absolutely beautiful reflections of a truly great nation.”
