Sounds Like the 19th Century

Brent Santin and Gary Mallon present a collection of lively songs and instrumental tunes from the 19th century, interspersed with the sounds of 19th century life. Besides some wonderful music, this album offers unique 'sound montages' which follow themes of 19th century industry, the trades, domestic life, war, transportation and farm animals. The effect is to take the listener on an audio journey to another time: to listen to the rumble of mill machinery, the sound of the blacksmith and cabinetmaker at work, the clatter of horse hooves and wagon wheels. The songs are rousing renditions of pieces popular in Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.

1866: Music of Canada West

"In 1866, with confederation only one year away, the province of Canada was a thriving young part of the British Empire. This recording presents a wide variety of music that could have been heard in Canada West (formerly Upper Canada) at that time. The selections include folk-songs, parlour tunes, minstrel-minstrel music and classical pieces performed on 19th century instruments such as banjos, flutes, melodeons, violins, zithers, spoons, bones and flageolets. The accompanying booklet provides information on the history of the songs & instruments. The musicians are all current or former costumed interpreters at Upper Canada Village in Morrisburg, Ontario".
