Minuets for Dancing (Book + CD) B 894
Minuets for Dancing (Book + CD)
The music comes from two colonial American sources: the manuscript collection of minuets made by John Ormsby, a dancing master active in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland in the 1750s, and a group of printed English minuet collections from about the same time that belonged to Thomas Jefferson. For this publication, each of the dances was interpreted and reconstructed using period sources. Several pages are devoted to the technique of 18th-century deportment, figures (or "geography") of the minuet, honors for both the woman and the man, the English minuet step, a complete bibliography of period sources, and there is a first-hand account of the terror induced by a gentleman's first performance of the minuet at a public ball. Chords are indicated on the music and the figures have been matched with each piece of music.

Music in the Life of Benjamin Franklin CMI H106
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.

Music of the War of 1812- 2 CD Set CD 27908
Music of the War of 1812- 2 CD Set
Rigorously researched, the music and lyrics herein bring life to the issues, thoughts, and stories of this critical period of American history—authentically with drama and humor. THE WAR OF 1812 in America spawned a huge variety of songs and instrumental music. From the stirrings of party politics under President Adams, the traumatic effect of Jefferson’s Embargo in 1807, through the triumphal defense of Fort McHenry and last major battle at New Orleans, Americans sang about their thoughts, feelings and unfolding history. Fresh lyrics lashed out at political opponents, while military heroes like Hull, Perry and Jackson inspired ballads of praise which detail their great battles on land and sea.

Dancing by the Shore BM 003
Dancing by the Shore
Victorian Music from Nahant

TRACK LISTING:
1. Sea Serpent Polka by M. Strakosh, 1850 (2:20)“To Miss Rose Kennedy of New Orleans.” This piece, in the keys of Eb and Ab, is a classic example of a midcentury polka. The Sea Serpent was sighted on Boston's North Shore several times, most notably off of Nahant in 1819. The illustration on the cover of the sheet music shows a splendid large serpent at sea (its head looks remarkably like a terrestrial snake) with Boston's Beacon Hill in the distance.

2. Nahant March by W.H. Thomas, 1884 (4:34)
The feeling of this march is similar to early Sousa marches, which date to the same period. Our version is adapted from multi-piece band arrangement published by W.H. Cundy of Boston, MA in 1884.

3–7. Nahant Quadrilles by John H. Hewitt, 1836
No. 1 – Rebecca (3:17)
No. 2 – Estelle (1:40)
No. 3 – Laura (1:56)
No. 4 – Georgette (2:36)
No. 5 – Sophia (2:03)
“Dedicated to Miss Rebecca Willson of Boston.” The illustration on the sheet music shows a lovely nautical scene by Fitz Hugh Lane, with the Nahant Hotel in the distance. John Hill Hewitt, according to the New Grove Dictionary, “has often been named the first successful native American composer of songs.” He's the son of James Hewitt, composer of the Nahant Waltz.

8. Col. Lowell’s Quick Step by B.A. Burditt, 1838 (5:20) “As performed at Nahant July 6, 1838. Respectfully dedicated to the Officers and Members of the Independent Company of Cadets by the Boston Brigade Band.” A nineteenth century quick step is described as a "spirited" military march.

9. Nahant Polka by Ludwig Stasny
“Composed & Dedicated to Mess’rs Paran & J.E.P. Stevens, Proprietors of the Nahant House.” The illustration on the sheet music shows the Nahant Hotel (also known as the Nahant House), which was built in 1823 by Colonel Thomas H. Perkins; in the 1850s the management was taken over by Mess'rs Paran and Stevens. The hotel burned down in 1861.

10–14. The Lancer's Quadrilles
No. 1 – La Dorset (1:54)
No. 2 – Lodoiska (2:00)
No. 3 – La Native (1:34)
No. 4 – Les Graces (2:00)
No. 5 – Les Lanciers (3:56)
One of the most popular quadrille sets throughout the nineteenth century was The Lancer's. This orchestration is adapted from The Star Collection of Instrumental Music by John W. Moore (1858); at the top, the original states “As danced at Nahant, Newport, Saratoga, and Other Fashionable Places.”

15. Nahant Waltz by James Hewitt, c.1827 (4:19)
The music-box sound of this waltz is typical of the first quarter of the nineteenth century, when waltzes first began to achieve popularity. Hewitt (1770-1822) was a British conductor and composer who came to the U.S. in 1792. The original version of this waltz was published by his son in Boston between 1825 and 1829. This versionis is adapted from one published in a much later collection.

Cherwell Thy Wyne: Dances of fifteenth-century England from the Gresley Manuscri DHDS 2013
Cherwell Thy Wyne: Dances of fifteenth-century England from the Gresley Manuscri
The 'Gresley' manuscript is a small notebook written by John Baynes belonging to the Gresley of Drakelow family papers and held in the Derbyshire Record Office at Matlock, dated to c. 1500. As far as is known, it is the only extant English dance record of its type.
This book is the product of extensive research by Ann and Paul Kent. It contains an overview of the manuscript, a guide to the performance of the dances, detailed descriptions of the steps, transcriptions of the text, melody lines and full dance instructions for all 26 of the dances for which choreographies are given in the manuscript.
The CD has music for all the dances with other tunes from the manuscript and specially written tunes for dances where no music is given. It has been designed to match the dances in the book, as well as being excellent listening.

Far, Far From Ypres (Songs, Poems And Music Of World War I) - 2CD CDTRAX 1418
Far, Far From Ypres (Songs, Poems And Music Of World War I) - 2CD
The album is a tribute to all the soldiers from Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales, and also their Commonwealth brothers in arms from all corners of the globe, who fought and suffered together in the Great War and, in particular, all those who died.

The album has a more Scottish perspective than any of its predecessors but when one considers that Scotland suffered the most soldiers killed, per head of population, of any nation that fought in the conflict, such an album was greatly overdue. It is also doubtful if the songs, poems and music of WW1 have ever before been covered in such depth.

This project was first suggested to Ian Green of Greentrax Recordings in 2004 by Des Brogan, Managing Director of Mercat Tours International, who specialise in tours of both WW1 and WW2 cemeteries and battlefields. Jim Paris, who also contributed, is a Mercat Tours Battlefield Guide. Ian, who had read many books on both WW1 and WW2, was interested but regrettably the lack of financial resources at that time caused it to be placed on the ‘back-burner’. In 2007, however, Des Brogan invited Ian and his wife June on one of Mercat’s WW1 coach tours of France and Belgium. June was also finally able to fulfil a life-long desire to visit the graveyard of her Grandfather McLennan, in one of the many beautifully maintained War Cemeteries.
