This program celebrated our European and African ancestors who came to the New World. Some brought shiploads of material possessions — tools, household goods, books and manuscripts. Some, like the slaves, brought only themselves. All of them brought their memories. Our ancestors’ remembered music — hymns, canticles, folk songs, instrumental tunes, dances, rhythms — became the foundation for our rich North American music idiom. This concert was a sampler of folk, vernacular, and religious music from that immigrant tradition.
