    Pride of the Regiment

    Price:  $15.00

    Another of the Federal City Brass Band's Series, as always, performed on original instruments, and in pure fidelity to the original arrangements. This CD focuses on many of the popular military and patriotic tunes of the period, as well as some of the least performed arrangements. While it is always a pleasure to listen to familiar tunes, listening to pieces that are rarely played increases ones' knowledge and musical ear for the period. Over time, one is able to discern the musical differences between the 1860's and later periods.

    The CD contains the following pieces, as well as an 8 page booklet of program notes. Feel free to click on the samplings of the different tunes to wet your listening appetite for music of the 1860's.
