In 1893, at the age of 33, Katherine Lee Bates, an English professor at Wellesley College, took a train trip to Colorado Springs to teach a short summer school session at Colorado College. Several of the sights on her trip inspired her and found their way into a poem, including the "White City" of the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, with its promise of the future denoted by alabaster buildings; the wheat fields of America's heartland through which her train was riding; and the majestic view of the Great Plains from high atop Pikes Peak. A hymn tune composed by Samuel A. Ward was fitted to the words in 1910 and the resulting song has become one of the most popular and enduring of many American patriotic songs. This version is for medium voice and piano. 3:27. Arranged and copyrighted 2015 by Spike Maiden Mueller. See other compositions and arrangements by Spike Maiden Mueller at
