THE PRACTITIONERS OF MUSICK ensemble, was founded by John Burkhalter and the late Professor Eugene Roan (1931 - 2006) to survey the musical riches of 18th century Great Britain - Ireland & both the Colonial and early Federal periods in America. Recent research, has also focused attention on musical life in New-France before the Fall of Quebec in 1759. The group has presented period entertainments of music at many historical sites, from Historic Deerfield, MA to Colonial Williamsburg, VA. Many of these concerts have had their origins in the astonishing library of early published music collected by Messrs Burkalter and Roan. Because many of these works are unpublished, the Practitioners have presented many works for the first time since they were composed in the eighteenth century.
