Synopsis

Product Description
Words of Wisdom is a collection of North American songs written between 1690 and 1950. Some of the authors are known, most of them not. The songs espouse varying perspectives, by turns humorous, frank, sentimental and stoic. This album is the first volume of the Humanitarium Series: recordings of musical artifacts drawn from folk material, parlor music, ditties, chants, jingles, historic popular song, and music for liturgical and institutional use. Brian Dewan has played zither with the Raymond Scott Orchestrette and three different symphony orchestras; collaborated with They Might Be Giants, and written scores for theater and films of Ladislaw Starewicz, Sesame Street, MTV and Blue Man Group.
