Format: Audio CD
I am a campaign-style Union reenactor in the Eastern US who has emphasized Civil War-era music in my knowledge base. I was also a musician for several years. DC Hall's New Concert ensemble has done a first-rate job of recreating our Northern ancestors' music. From my reading, their efforts have approximated the small, live music groups that were popular before and during the War. The liner notes are well-written, and historically accurate. Perfect for background music when having your pards over to count threads or make up rounds. I recommend it without hesitation.

A splendid program of varied, contrasting pieces for voice and
instruments. All performers are complete masters of this music
and its idiomatic performance style, and they execute it with skill, wit and (where appropriate) real depth of feeling.
This is an album which everyone who loves Civil War music,
or who is meeting it here for the first time, will cherish.

D.C. Hall's NC&QB is a wonderful small ensemble that really adds new light to the Civil War genre. At times, it is so tender in feeling (The Picture on the Wall)and then rowdy in spirit (The Year of Jubilo). The familiar Star Spangled Banner is done in a wonderful unique rythme. Get this recording!

Music of the period performed in the style of the period and with great feeling. Don't be afraid that the music is "stuffy" or academic. It is funny, sad, and rousing. It gives the feeling of immediacy that never goes out of style.

HASH(0x9d8e66c0) out of 5 stars Just Like Being in the Parlor Nov. 2 2012
By J. R. Trtek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This disc is one of my two all-time favorites when it comes to Civil War music, the other being Songs of the Civil War on Sony. This album, however, has the distinction of having more "historically informed performances" than the other, as well having material that is entirely of the period. There's not much more I can add to what other reviewers have already said. One can always wish for selections that were not included, but these renditions are exquisite. Highly recommended.
