These three pieces, Lac Tremblant, Devon Shore, and Métis-sur-Mer, are settings of poems by T. W. Evans. Lac Tremblant and Métis-sur-Mer, are lakes near Montreal, and the Devon shore referred to is on the Southwest Peninsula of England. The poems are inspired by aspects of each of these places. In Lac Tremblant, the poet ponders the nature of waves; Devon Shore is about the rock cliffs rising up from the beach; and Métis-sur-Mer describes the changing colours and reflections on the water. While inspired by these specific places, the descriptions resonate with anyone who has walked along a beach, or sat by a rocky shoreline.
