The Highland Park Recorder Society and Musica Dolce

Sunday, April 2, 2006

The concert, for recorders, cello, harpsichord, and possibly other instruments and voices, included delightful music that was heard in America at the time of Benjamin Franklin, the tercentenary of whose birth we celebrate in 2006. Furthermore, we offered a taste of New Jersey’s musical history. The concert consisted of music by composers who were active in New Jersey and elsewhere during Colonial and Federal times. The music is selected from an enormous archive of eighteenth century music in America, which has been extensively researched over decades by Gordon Myers, Prof. Emeritus, The College of New Jersey, with the aid of Rockefeller Foundation grants, and recently given, with great generosity, to the Practitioners of Musick, Prof. Eugene Roan, Emeritus, Westminster Choir College of Rider University, and John Burkhalter, independent scholar.

The music for this concert was selected collaboratively by Highland Park Recorder Society Conductor John Eisenhauer and Messrs. Roan and Burkhalter. It included works by composers who were born in Europe but were active in America, such as George Knowil Jackson, Hans Gram, William Selby and Peter Albrecht von Hagen; and selections of works by American-born composers Oliver Holden, Francis Hopkinson, and Jacob French; and New Jersey-born James Lyon. Some of these works have most likely not been heard since those times.
