George Washington: Music for the First President
This recording includes songs and instrumental tunes familiar to our first President. Thoroughly researched and performed on reproduction instruments popular in late 18th-century America, these pieces demonstrate the breadth and character of music during George Washington's lifetime. Selected chiefly from 18th-century American sources, they include pieces composed in Washington's honor, songs heard at Mount Vernon during his lifetime, tunes to which he danced, and airs and instrumental works he enjoyed at the theater and in concert. Some of the featured composers are Francis Hopkinson, Henry Carey, Pierre L. Duport, and a New York fiddler named Mr. Hoffmaster. Instruments include: harpsichord, violin, baroque and English guitars, hammered dulcimer, recorder and voices. Liner notes offer both a biographical essay and detailed program notes. See companion music book 'George Washington.A Biography in Social Dance', written by Van Winkle Keller Kate & Charles Hendrickson.
