Music, say our American ancestors, may soothe the heart, but it also sustains the search for values. This program will explore, in a present moment when American ideals are undergoing such deep challenge, the vital and life-affirming sounds of the young Republic, as its citizens sang and played forth their love of freedom and their rejection of tyranny. The rough-hewn sounds of citizen-composers, such as the Boston tanner Billings or the Vermont tavern-keeper Ingalls, still ring true and strong to our contemporary ears.
