Zion's Walls - band accomp.

We are doing the Koponen arrangement of Zion's Walls, originally by Aaron Copland. I have the Army Field Band and Soldiers Chorus recording, which, naturally, has a band accompaniment. I checked with my local vendor and found that there was no orchestration/bandstration  available. Does anyone know if it exists and how to get it?
Thank you

The sole source of orchestration and bandstration for the Old American Songs by Aaron Copland is the Rental Office of Boosey & Hawkes in New York.

Contact the experts EMS, and ask if Zion's Walls is contained in Set 2 of the band arrangement. You may have to buy a score to find the key and to see if the arrangement will fit with the choral version.  The orchestra parts are on rental only from Boosey.  Military bands are allowed to make special arrangements of copyright works for their use only.
