The Pine Tree Suite: Music from the American Revolution - score by Gerald Burakoff & Willy Strickland. For SA Recorders and Orff Instruments (with optional voices). Recorder with other Instruments. 3 - Moderate. Score. Published by Consort Music, Inc (MM.CM01033).
Very little original music has come to us from the American Revolution. The majority of the songs were well-known tunes from the British Isles, with words written for those tunes by colonial tunesmiths. For example: "The British Grenadiers", of English origin, was used as the tune, with new words written to become "Free America". One familiar exception to this practice is "Chester", with words and music by William Billings. The first verse was written as a hymn in 1770, and was later adapted for use in the Revolution by the addition of other verses extolling the ideas and virtues of New England colonists. It was then used as a march and became the most popular of the Revolutionary War tunes. CONTENTS: Chester Two Colonial Songs: The Girl I Left Behind Me i The Vicar Of Bray Johnny Has Gone For A Soldier Revolutionary March: (The White Cockade i The British Grenadiers i Yankee Doodle).
