John Burke’s music is concerned with healing and transcendence. In these two major chamber works, Burke uses the mythical metaphor of the journey to bring listeners to a better appreciation of themselves and their world. The recording includes Burke’s String Quartet which was the 1995 winner of the Jules Léger Prize for Chamber Music.

« The performances of both works are outstanding…The sound quality, clarity and ambience all meet the excellent standards we have come to expect from current CMC Centrediscs releases. »
– Edward Jurkowski, CAML Review
