The Civil War: Its Music and Sounds
Frederick Fennell and Eastman Wind Ensemble
The Civil War comes to life in this remarkable recording. Complete with battle sounds by the Reactivated Civil War Unit, Battery B, 2nd New Jersey Light Artillery, and performed on period instruments using authentic wartime scores (not rearrangements), this must-have collection of band and field tunes, cavalry, bugle signals, drum calls, and soldiers songs from both sides of the conflict is powerful and very moving. Fifty-five stirring tracks in all.
