    Appalachian Spring – or am I missing something…. if this were a speech, book, or any other work in text without credit being given it would be called Plagiarism …..

    Yes, you are missing something. Appalachian Spring is a work by Aaron Copeland, who used the tune of “Simple Gifts”, an American folk hymn, as a thread of melody through the work. The work that Williams did for Obama’s inauguration was based on the same hymn, No plagarism.
