Composer Joyce Johnson Rouse (a.k.a. “Earth Mama”) created Virginia Beauty: A Love Song for the Commonwealth as a tribute to Virginia’s natural beauty, hardworking people, and rich history.
A medley of expert musicians perform Virginia Beauty in standard, bluegrass, abbreviated, and instrumental versions. Virginia Beauty is also enriched with bonus materials; when the CD inserted into a computer, the user gains access to printable documents and suggestions for using the song in performance and education. Highly recommended!
The audio tracks are “Long Version”, “Bluegrass Version – Featuring Dale Ann Bradley”, “Short Version”, and “Instrumental Track”. (Full review)
