Keys of the Palace
Colonial Williamsburg's Michael Monaco performs Peter Pelham's repertoire of 18th century music on the period keyboard instruments of the Governor's Palace.
Williamsburg's chief musician for more than fifty years was Peter Pelham. He worked in theaters, churches, concert halls and in the chambers of the Colonial gentry, and he often performed for the Royal Governor's at the Governor's Palace. The music in this CD reflects the selections that Monaco plays superbly throughout the year at Colonial Williamsburg's live music venues.
