    A Numerous and Brilliant Assembly: A Colonial Williamsburg Musical Sampler

    Colonial Williamsburg has produced a number of recordings that feature the authentic instruments and music of eighteenth-century Virginia. From classical to slave songs, this is a sampler of the music performed in the various music venues.

    Selected performances from nine of Colonial Williamsburg's recordings provide the listener with a sampler of eighteenth-century music ranging from thrilling fife and drum marches, to the chamber music enjoyed by Thomas Jefferson, from chants used by slaves working in the field, to the music enjoyed by common folks in Williamsburg's taverns.
