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.
