Timothy Swan is an important figure in the beginnings of musical composition in America. Though his output was modest, he was perhaps the most original composer to emerge from the eighteenth-century New England singing school tradition. This comprehensive edition, based on a study of prints, manuscripts, sketches, and drafts, affords an unparalleled view of an eighteenth-century psalmodist at work. It also gives performers access to the music of one of America's earliest composers.
