Behold That Star

Item Number: CD2001


“A wonderful collection of late 19th-century fare.” The Washington Post
“An outstanding collection…educational and entertaining.” Parents Guide/Audioweb

The cast of the Washington, D.C. Revels traces how American music was fashioned from distinct European- and African-American styles. This CD is a delightful American panorama of ebullient gospel shouter, prim Sunday-go-to-meetin’ hymns, brisk fiddle tunes, lonely slave spirituals, plucky brass band numbers, and timeless folk songs. Although a few tracks are Christmassy, this is definitely an all-year-round record. Featuring fiddling great Bruce Molsky and baritone Charles Williams.
