Description: The use of American folk- and hymn-tunes and the evocation of rural, folk America is even stronger in these chamber works (all the works for "chamber ensemble" use piano with varying combinations of winds and strings), three of which were inspired by silent films directed by women in 1912 and 1913 Ensemble Istropolis; Kirk Trevor, Moyzes String Quartet.
