Colonial Williamsburg introduces a new CD of colonial keyboard music, Keys of the Palace, featuring Colonial Williamsburg musician and interpreter Michael Monaco performing more than twenty works written by eighteenth-century composers.

Among the selections are "Minuet" by Peter Pelham, "Air" by George Friedrich Handel, "Scot's Ground" and "Lesson by Lully" by Scottish music publisher Robert Bremner and "Pastorale" by Charles Wesley.

The CD was recorded in the Governor's Palace in Colonial Williamsburg's Historic Area using antique instruments in its collections, including a 1758 Jacob Kirckman harpsichord, a circa 1780 James Ball pianoforte and a 1750 Adcock and Pether bureau organ.

"These are not concert selections," said Monaco. "These are the sort of compositions colonists would experience in the day-to-day living in Williamsburg."
