What Music Did the Pilgrims Hear?

What music did the Pilgrims hear? The Plimoth colonists were a diverse group of Separatists and Anglicans, religious zealots and irreverent opportunists. They brought with them music as varied as their reasons for coming to the New World in 1620. Plimoth Colony heard not just solemn English psalms, but also humorous catches, ballads, Dutch songs, and rousing dance tunes.
