Boosey and Hawkes Rendezvous (FDR) (No. 7 from Presidential Suite) SATB a cappella Composed by Jack Gottlieb


Presidential Suite is a celebration of America’s priceless heritage of liberty. Inspired by the wisdom and whimsy of some of our most colorful presidents, it juxtaposes the eloquence of John F. Kennedy and Franklin D. Roosevelt, with the journalistic pith of Theodore Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman’s blunt common sense, Abraham Lincoln’s homespun wit and Thomas Jefferson’s irony – plus a legendary quip from the taciturn Calvin Coolidge.

The Gatekeeper

The Gatekeeper


The first biography of arguably the most influential member of Franklin Delano Roosevelt?s administration, Marguerite? Missy? LeHand, FDR?s de facto chief of staff, who has been misrepresented, mischaracterized, and overlooked throughout history?until now. Widely considered the first female presidential chief of staff, Marguerite? Missy? LeHand was the right-hand woman to Franklin Delano Roosevelt?both personally and professionally?for more than twenty years. Although her official title as personal secretary was relatively humble, her power and influence were unparalleled. Everyone in the White House knew one truth: If you wanted access to Franklin, you had to get through Missy. She was one of his most trusted advisors who traveled with him around the world, affording her a unique perspective on the president that no one else could claim, and she was deeply admired and respected by Eleanor and the Roosevelt children. With unprecedented access to Missy?s family and original source materials, journalist Kathryn Smith tells the captivating and forgotten story of the intelligent, loyal, and clever woman who had a front-row seat to history in the making. The Gatekeeper is a thoughtful, revealing unsung-hero story about a woman ahead of her time, the true weight of her responsibility, and the tumultuous era in which she lived?and a long overdue tribute to one of the most important female figures in American history.

Universal Hyde Park On Hudson

Universal Hyde Park On Hudson


In June 1939, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (Academy Award nominee Bill Murray) and his wife Eleanor (Olivia Williams) host the King and Queen of England (Samuel West and Olivia Colman) for a weekend at the Roosevelt home at Hyde Park on Hudson, in upstate New York – the first-ever visit of a reigning English monarch to America. With Britain facing imminent war with Germany, the Royals are desperately looking to FDR for support. But international affairs must be juggled with the complexities of FDRs domestic establishment, as wife, mother, and mistresses all conspire to make the royal weekend an unforgettable one. Seen through the eyes of Daisy (Academy Award nominee Laura Linney), Franklins neighbor and intimate, the weekend will produce not only a special relationship between two great nations, but, for Daisy – and through her, for us all – a deeper understanding of the mysteries of love and friendship.
