(On back):
This recording includes songs and instrumental tunes familiar to, and in some cases written for, our first President. Thoroughly researched and performed on reproduction instruments popular in late 18th-century America, these pieces demonstrate the breadth and character of music during George Washington's lifetime. Instruments include harpsichord, violin, baroque and English guitars, hammered dulcimer, recorder and voices. Liner notes offer both a biographical essay and detailed program notes; a separate companion music book is available for those wishing to re-create the music themselves.
