The rush to war, the loss of loved ones, the deep wounds of a five-year conflict-the intense emotions of the American Civil War are brought to life through the songs and instrumental music of the day. Now, 150 years after the start of the war, Anne Enslow and Ridley Enslow have produced a music CD that features both familiar Civil War songs such as "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and lesser known but haunting melodies like "The Vacant Chair." The musicians include pianist Jacqueline Schwab, whose distinctive playing was heard on Ken Burns's highly-acclaimed Civil War documentary, celebrated fiddler John Kirk, and noted balladeer Linda Russell. Includes 32-page liner notes. A free educator's guide is available at enslow.com.
