I received the CD North & South: Forgotten Music from the American Civil War (Gaslantern Records, 2013) and its accompanying sheet music as a birthday gift this year, and a very lovely gift it was! Sixteen new pieces of historical music, beautifully played by the Orchestra of the Gilded Age, conducted by Jeffrey Hunter, many of them suitable for dancing!
The actual disc features a gorgeous historical battle scene, but there are no real liner notes included. Happily, almost all the information one could want appears on the album website: not merely dates and lengths, but composers, background notes, and even the musical key of each piece.
This is a "listening" CD, not made specifically for dancers, but many of the pieces will work for dancing. As usual, I've gone through the album track by track and made notes about which pieces are danceable and for what.
Of special note: the album is divided into two themes, "North" and "South", with the pieces for each named in honor of particular Union or Confederate leaders or otherwise connected to one side. If one's dancers or listeners are apt to find such celebratory naming problematic, be careful which half you select from!
