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.”
