Music in the Life of Benjamin Franklin
The songs and instrumental pieces in this CD and book are those Benjamin Franklin knew and enjoyed during his long and eventful life. Franklin’s musical experiences were extremely varied and comprehensive for his day. Always an advocate for the common folk, Franklin delighted in sentimental Scots songs and broadside ballads. He authored comical texts to be sung as drinking songs. Yet as a diplomat and gentleman he was frequently at the Opera and at concerts in Philadelphia, Paris and London. He was familiar with works by George Frideric Handel, William Hayes, Francis Hopkinson, Anne-Louise Brillon, André Grétry, and Christoph Willibald Gluck.

Fiddle Tunes from the American Revolution
rn in Wilmington, Delaware, Captain George Bush was an officer in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. As he traveled in the service Bush carried his fiddle and in 1779, stationed in Sunbury, Pennsylvania, he began to enter music, dance figures and song lyrics into a small pocket notebook. He copied songs about being a soldier and about love and women; minuets, marches, and other airs; and the figures and music for a number of country dances. In each of the three books, Social Dances, Songs and Fiddle Tunes from the American Revolution, Bush’s music has been edited for modern use with complete annotation and historical notes.

Fife Tunes of the American Revolution
This is a modern edition of melodies for the fife collected in Ellington, CT in 1777. Born in 1760, Giles Gibbs, Jr, was just old enough to be a member of the local militia.

His music is from the Lexington alarm, the French and Indian War, the Beggar’s Opera, Masonic songs and old ballads. Scottish and Irish melodies, French dances, English marches by Handel and psalm tunes fill his pages, some copied from books, many written out by ear. Even \"Yankee Doodle\" is included, but with a very strange title.

Music of the War of 1812 in America
All of the songs and music in this book are transcribed from sources printed or handwritten during the period of the War of 1812, from the earliest cries of "America, Commerce and Freedom" to the long song about the "Beginnings, Events, End and Consequences of the late war with Great Britain."
These songs reflect the history of the war and played a large role in bolstering or changing public opinion and political support. Included are the artful new lyrics in praise of the American flag still flying over Fort McHenry early one September morning in 1814, a song that became our national anthem.
On another front, the band master at Fort Niagara composed tunes for his band to play during special ceremonies or evening rest periods. All twelve are included.
Collected here are the 34 pieces of sheet music from our website at www.1812music.org. Within each piece is:
— the entire text of the main song set to music;
— an essay on its place in history; its meaning to singers and audiences;
— teaching and study suggestions;
— background information about the author of the text and the tune;
— lyrics for other songs that help to understand the main song.
There are 33 songs fully set to music, 22 instrumental tunes, 16 additional complete song lyrics that are related to the main song, 18 shorter entries of parts of relevant songs, and many period illlustrations. Preference was given to editions of the music that had a period accompaniment so that songs could be easily played on a keyboard. We have supplied chords for most of the pieces to enable accompaniment with guitar or autoharp. With a coil binding, the book lies flat for use on a music stand or a piano.
