Description: Born in Dartmoor, England, Hewitt worked as a violinist, conductor, teacher, organist, music publisher, and composer in New York and Boston, with several years in the South toward the end of his life. Most of us know him (if we know him at all) for his Battle of Trenton. Here is his entire keyboard œuvre which ranges from virtuoso show pieces to genre pieces for domestic consumption. 4 CDs.
