David & Ginger Hildebrand are the public faces of THE COLONIAL MUSIC INSTITUTE, an on-line compendium of research resources, publications, and educational outreach in the fields of early American music and dance. CMI is grounded upon primary research enlightened by interdisciplinary scholarship, disseminated through scholarly writing, authentic performances, and sound recordings made to the highest standards.  NOTICE: all but one of our databases, under resources, are currently unavailable for use, having been hacked -- we are working feverishly to restore them.
