This is where we put the music that we feel is suitable for historical documentaries and films from any period before the 1920's. Be it the early 20th century America or even older going back to ancient times to explore Egyptian pyramids or South American Mayan culture, I guess you could say that this music would be suitable for use on the History Channel. You'll find a lot of classical music here, as well as folk / ambient and other music genres.

Melodic Russian, Gypsy, Eastern European or Balkan folk piece. Played by acoustic guitars, bass, drums, shaker. I had a picture in mind while composing - Russian villages, long road, lonely horse carrying a cart through a snowy woods. Could be used in any project which needs background music or a soundtrack. The whole track loops seamlessly (as WAV). [Tempo: Medium, Fast / 113 BPM]

"In Dublins Fair City" is a traditional Irish pub song that goes by various different names, including "Cockles and Mussels" and "Molly Malone". Telling the story of Molly Malone, this lively and charming Irish track has been sung in many an Irish pub over the decades, even centuries. Featuring accordion, violin, Irish flute (tin whistle / penny whistle), piano and acoustic guitars. Starts rather slowly and then increases the tempo slightly for each new verse - ending up considerably faster than it started. A great, foot stomping, Irish traditional drinking song. Also available is an Underscore version, with all the lead instruments removed (great for singing along). [Trad./Arr: B. Lynne] [Tempo: Slow, Medium, Fast / 68 BPM]
