American Colonial Instrumental Music

Peter, Moller, and Gehot may not be household names, but American Colonial Instrumental Music shows their importance in early American classical music. All three composers were born in Europe but spent much of their careers working in America as church music directors and organists. This recording features four complete works, some of the earliest American chamber music, elegantly performed by the Moravian Quartet and the New Music Quartet.
