This product has a minimum order quantity of five copies.

Written at the request of Eugene Rogers for his new series, “Bound for the Promised Land” uses three 19th-century melodies: the shape note hymn “The Promised Land;” and two Appalachian fiddle tunes, “Santa Anna's Retreat” and “The Temperance Reel.” Using the Celtic phenomenon called mouth music or lilting, the singers accompany the dance music as fiddlers in a light and energetic fashion. The hymn tune, published in 1835, is credited to Miss M. Durhan, and is thus probably the first music published in America by a female composer. Duration Ca. 4 minutes
