Released in 2008 to less than no fanfare - Rounder don’t even list it or volume 4 on their website, doesn’t appear to be available from Rhapsody, etc. Appalling. It does show up on Paul Cranford’s site, of course: http://www.cranfordpub.com/recordings/BrasDorHouse.htm#Lady%20Charlotte

One novel piece is a solo from Gordon MacLean on the parlor organ, which was used as backing before pianos became ubiquitous.
