This collection of original essays covers individuals, groups, musical practices, and other topics representing various regions and cities. The subjects reflect the religious, ethnic, and social plurality of the American musical experience as well as the impact on society provided by the arrival of immigrants and the movements of musicians and musical practices. Each article sheds light on cultural expressions through music in 18th and 19th-century America. The essays range from an examination of the music and dance performed in Philadelphia City Tavern, 1773-1790, to a study of the American concert tour of two British singers in 1838-1840, to a discussion of Bach's growing popularity in America during the 19th century.
