Annotation / Notes: The life of Louis Cheslock proveds an expansive view of the musical life of Baltimore from the 'teens to the 1970s. Cheslock's story begins in 1893 when his older brother, Henry Czeslak, fled from Poland to England to avoid conscription into the Russian army and changed his name to Rosenberg to avoid detection. His parents followed and eventually moved to Baltimore with their children. Louis Cheslock was one of the original members of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (founded in 1916), a faculty member at Peabody from 1922 to 1976, a member of Henry Mencken's Saturday Night Club from 1927 to its final gathering in 1950, a composer who wrote over 150 works (including opera in collaboration with Mencken), writer and music critic. Cheslock witnessed and wrote on the emergence of jazz as an art form, the rise of radio and the scientific study of music.

Talley, John Barry. Secular Music in Colonial Annapolis: The Tuesday Club, 1745-1756. Urbana: University of Illinois Press, 1988.
Annotation / Notes: Companion volume to Breslaw, Records of the Tuesday Club . . . listed above . Some of the earliest music composed in the colonies came from the pens of Rev. Thomas Bacon, Dr. Alexander Hamilton, and other members of this important social/musical organization. Talley presents the background biographies and musical contributions of these men, with a good focus on the music itself (including background and transcriptions of songs and instrumental music). Many club members being recent immigrants from Scotland and England, these largely upper- and upper-middle class amateur musicians had a huge impact on the musical life of mid-18th-century Maryland, and beyond. The book closes with transcriptions of 55 minuets by non club-member John Ormsby, from a manuscript music book copied in Annapolis in 1758.
