Description
You are invited to return to a time and place that vanished long ago, yet still lives in the American heart like a half-forgotten memory of home. Stephen Foster's American musical legacy, from rousing Civil War marches to his tender and moving parlour ballads, is brought to life anew in a vocal and instrumental program that uses period instruments—including Civil War–era military drums. "No other 19th-Century American songwriter wrote so many songs that are still remembered today" writes music critic Ken Emerson in the CD booklet (which includes full song texts). "Paradoxically, Jeffrey Dooley's antique approach enables us to hear Foster afresh." (Emerson is the author of Doo-dah! Stephen Foster and the Rise of American Popular Culture.) Songs include "Beautiful Dreamer," "Ah! May the Red Rose Live Always," "We Are Coming," "Father Abraham," "Linger in Blissful Repose," "Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair," "That's What's the Matter," "Hard Times Come Again No More," "Summer Longings," and "My Old Kentucky Home," while the instrumental selections include "Soirée Polka" for piano, "Santa Anna's Retreat," "Farewell! Mother Dear I Go," and "I'm Nothing But a Plain Old Soldier."
