A stately, patriotic ballad, the text of My Land describes the beauty of the land and the quality of its people and could apply to any country. It is not specifically about the United States. The composer gives each section of the choir independent solo lines which come together in three part harmony at the end of each long phrase. Grand and majestic, this piece asks for the singer to perform with conviction.
