Album Notes
About the CD...

Keyboardist Jim Levy and Douglas Deitemyer, recorder, began playing together in the mid '90s at Rockville United Church, in Rockville MD, where Jim is the music director. The musicians share a love both for folk melodies and for Baroque performance. Inspired by the Celtic qualities of the score for the "Lord of the Rings" movies, this CD was recorded in early 2002. Offering both American and Celtic folk tunes (is there a real difference?) the CD also serves up a four movement Handel sonata. The easy compatibility between the two musical styles show that Folk and Baroque all flow from the same creative stream.
