Colonial Music: “Soldier’s Joy” and “Liberty”

Music of the 18th century as recorded by Chester Simpson at Fort Frederick, Maryland in April 2011. The players, as best I can hear, are Dave McKnew, Al Keller, Susan Waller and Fern Hoffman. They are just great.

Here is more on “Soldier’s Joy” and “The Liberty Song,” which may be what is played here. The comment at the YouTube post are interesting.
