Product Description

This CD has all the essential music of the Revolutionary War era, including favorites “British Grenadiers,” “Yankee Doodle,” “The World Turned Upside Down” and 52 more (77+ minutes!) all performed with period-style drum beatings. Unique to this CD is a battle scene with muskets firing and cannons roaring, and with the music units joining in! This recording is the sole example of music of the Revolutionary War era used by the U.S. National Park Service at its website: American Revolutionary War: Music of the American Revolution http://www.cr.nps.gov/museum/exhibits/revwar/guco/gucomusic.html The dates given with the song titles are the date each particular tune became associated with this particular TITLE in the literature and manuscripts as presently known. To some of the tunes, their more generally used titles are given We have very few records of specific drum beatings from the 18th Century. Most beatings used by the Nathan Hale Ancient Fifes and Drums have been arranged to fit the music as closely to the STYLE of the period as we can reconstruct, using early 19th century manuals, and in accord with the traditional heritage of drumming. The Nathan Hale Ancient Fifes and Drums, Inc. is officially recognized as the reactivated 19th Connecticut Regiment of Foot - Continental Line. Organized in 1965, Their commitment to authenticity has resulted in their having won the coveted recognition from the Company of Military Historians. The ensemble participates in a variety of events; parades, musters, re-enactments, demonstrations and concerts. This CD is a revision of previously-published three-volume set of LP phonographic recordings which appeared under the same title.
