For Independence Day Weekend, Choral Showcase airs a piece by Robert Nathaniel Dett (1882-1943).  He was Canadian-born but spent most of his creative life in the United States, and he's a rare example of an American classical composer who directly found his inspiration in the music of Antonin Dvorak.

[The Cincinnati May Festival and the Cincinnati Symphony recorded The Ordering of Moses on a CD on the Bridge label in 2014.  It will be heard on WETA on Sunday, July 3, 2016 at 9 PM EDT.]
