Description
Arranged chronologically (The Battle for Freedom, The Father of American Choral Music [William Billings], Shape Notes and Singing Schools, Shaker Spirituals, Music from the Civil War, Revival Meetings and Spirituals), these uniquely American songs are performed with immense conviction and artistry.

"A widely varied collection of musical Americana rendered with consistent beauty and restraint. Mr. Frederiksen sets a soulful tone at the start with a solo rendering of the Shaker spiritual 'Lay Me Low' and later adds the sober ballads 'The Death of General Wolfe' and 'Captain Kidd.' Three numbers by the great New England hymnist William Billings include the classic song that gives the album its title, 'I Am the Rose of Sharon.' A Civil War segment looks southward with the instrumental ditty 'Dixie’s Land' and the song 'Maryland, My Maryland.' A sheaf of Shaker spirituals offers two delectable solos: 'O Love, Sweet Love,' performed by Deborah Rentz-Moore, a mezzo-soprano, and 'Stubborn Oak,' by Ms. Brotherton…. This one is to treasure, from beginning to end."—NYTimes

"An easy recommendation for everyone interested in this music, and that should be just about everybody."—Audiophile Audition

"A brilliant program brilliantly performed."—Buffalo News
