Description
This book presents a broad sampling of popular instrumental music from Colonial and early Federal America, including divisions, shape note hymns, country dances, and cotillions, arranged for the recorder. Originating in England, Holland, France, Germany, Ireland, and Scotland, these tunes began to reflect the new freedoms of America, notes master recorder player Scott Reiss of the group Hesperus, and they incorporated innovative textures and dissonances as the colonies became independent from England. With arrangements by Reiss, the book can function as a companion volume to the Hesperus music CD of the same name.
