Foster Songs, Vols. 1 & 2 Digital MP3 Album
Widely regarded as the first characteristically American composer, Stephen Foster wrote music that drew from both Southern dialects and Northern sensibilities, paradoxically reflecting both the entirety of the American experience and the divisive time in which he lived and wrote. The songs featured on this album were written as “parlor arias,” simple enough to be performed and enjoyed in the mid 19th-century American home.
