OVER THERE! Songs From America’s Wars
Jon English, tenor – Rob Carriker, piano
Marlborough Singers and Chamber Players

Presented here are songs dating form the Revolutionary War to World War I. Within them you’ll find expressions of love, pride, sorrow, and loss. But the most remarkable commonality you’ll discover is an unbridled and invincible spirit. These poets and composers share a true sense of patriotism and the courage to express it through verse and song. From the first cheer of Free America to the last verse of Keep the Home Fires Burning, these songs represent a more innocent age, when the carnage of war was kept on the battlefield, and not brought in to the parlors (or living rooms) of our homes. It wouldn’t be until the invention of the radio, movies and, ultimately television, that the reality of war, the brutality - would enter out lives in such an immediate and profound way.
