The Federal period was a time in which music was greatly enjoyed, and gatherings to listen to recitals and sing current songs were commonplace. Norfolk, one of the largest cities in Virginia, was renowned for its arts and culture, and the Myers family of the city was among the most musically talented. Many family members received musical training, and multiple of them were skilled amateur musicians, performing in both private and public concerts. Furthermore, as international shipping merchants, the Myer family was able to travel across the Atlantic, collecting an extensive library of over 900 music sheets. This library is reflective of their and post-Revolutionary War America's appreciation of music, comprising classical pieces, popular tunes, country dances, romantic ballads and early versions of patriotic songs.

The Chrysler Museum of Art and The Virginia Chorale Trio are pleased to share this live concert recording of selections from the Myers Music Collection—the largest family music collection from early 19th-century America.

Sponsored by the Chrysler Museum's Friends of Historic Houses (now called the Friends of the Moses Myers House), this concert and subsequent recording were made in 2010. We are pleased to offer a recently-uncovered cache of new and unopened CDs from this historic concert for the same 2010 price! Limited quantity available.
