This is the definitive work, now updated with additional information and illustrations.

In this updated edition, Cripe provides more current information about the music and musical instruments of Jefferson's time, new details about musical activities in places Jefferson lived or traveled, and additional analysis of the importance of music to Jefferson and his family at Monticello.
