Over the Hills and Far Away: Being a Collection of Music from 18th-Century Annapolis

Over five years of extensive research into the music and instruments of 18th-century Annapolis went into the making of this recording. The selections were recorded at Colonial sites throughout Annapolis using original and authentic reproduction instruments. With its six tune groupings, this recording is very useful in teaching students of all levels about music and colonial life.
