The "Best Of" selection described above, plus a CD containing 35 pieces from American Harmony (over 77 minutes of music), recorded by a top-quality chorus directed by compiler Nym Cooke. The CD will be included with the published anthology, but this copy is yours for the stated pledge amount.
American Harmony will be a visually beautiful, highly useful, and impeccably researched collection of the finest sacred part-music from early America. It has been compiled by a leading scholar in this field, a musician who knows these pieces as well as anyone alive. It will make history in the publishing of early American sacred music. Contributors of $100 or more will receive an autographed copy of the anthology, along with the companion CD (see description above).
Your own autographed copy of American Harmony with companion CD, PLUS an invitation to attend one of the "launch events" when the book is published. Each launch event will include a concert by the chorus American Harmony under author Nym Cooke's direction and a reception where copies of the book will be available for purchased. Note: all launch events will likely occur in Massachusetts.
