Music of the War of 1812 in America (Annapolis: Colonial Music Institute, 2011) by Kate Van Winkle Keller 246 pages, coil-bound to lie flat $30.00 (wholesale price upon request) All of the songs and music in this book are transcribed from sources printed or handwritten during the period of the War of 1812, from the earliestcries of "America, Commerce and Freedom" to the long song about the "Beginnings, Events, End and Consequences of the late war with Great Britain." These songs reflect the history of the war and played a large role in bolstering or changing public opinion and political support. Within each piece is: - the entire text of the main song set to music; - an essay on its place in history; its meaning to singers and audiences; - teaching and study suggestions; - background information about the author of the text and the tune; - lyrics for other songs that help to understand the main song. There are 33 songs fully set to music, 22 instrumental tunes, 16 additional complete song lyrics that are related to the main song, 18 shorter entries of parts of relevant songs, and many period illustrations. Preference was given to editions of the music that had a period accompaniment so that songs could be easily played on a keyboard. We have supplied chords for most of the pieces to enable accompaniment with guitar
