Peter Tchaikovsky 1812 Overture (real cannons) – YouTube.

No piece of music moves me like this does. I remember going to Ravinia as a child with my family. I sat on the lawn listening to this piece in its entirety. I jumped when the cannons went off. I felt the total thrill of the music flow through my veins as the bells sounded.

Have a listen. See if you can feel the birth of our country in this music.
