Through his many activities as composer, publisher, performer, and conductor, James Hewitt was a major force in the concert and theater life of New York and Boston from 1795 until 1820. This volume presents a sampling of his compositions, beginning with nineteen secular songs, all for voice and keyboard, followed by two sacred songs for a cappella voices in open score. Also included are ten works for solo keyboard: four marches, a waltz, a medley, a theme and variations, two sonatas, and a battle piece.
