QTY:  
Union & Liberty is a rare audiophile-quality recording of music from the American Civil War, performed on period instruments with a brilliant tenor soloist.  Stylus Magazine gave the disc a 5-star rating, and wrote:  “The concept for this volume of “Music Heard on the Northern Homefront during the American Civil War” may sound like a history lesson, but it quickly soars beyond that...tuneful, poignant, and even rousing...Not only do these tunes hearken back to a distant era, they are also great fun to listen to...Engineered with splendid sound, Union & Liberty is an unforgettable recording.”       

Fashioned after the illustrious Halls Brothers Band, active throughout the United States from the 1840s to the 1870s, the “new” Hall’s Band (Peter H. Bloom, flute; Steven Jackson, clarinet; James H. Johnston, violin; Patrick G. Jordan, viola; Henry Peyrebrune, bass violin; Kevin M’Dermott, tenor) was acclaimed for vivid, historically informed performance of music heard in 19th century America.  Hall’s Band was a winner of the American Musicological Society’s coveted Noah Greenberg Award for distinguished contribution to the study and performance of historical music. The Boston Globe called the ensemble “an absolutely first-rate artistic enterprise, irrespective of category,” while Gramophone Magazine wrote, “clean playing and careful ensemble are the keynote…Hall’s Band meets the challenge with precision and spirit.” Stereophile praised this “winning band…irresistibly high concept,” and H&B Recordings wrote, “The Quadrille Band performs with excitement and aplomb.”
