Some of Canada’s finest artists are brought together in this recording to perform vocal works by the eminent Canadian composer Oskar Morawetz. Drawn from his generous output of songs, the four works featured on this disc offer a variety of contrasted moods. From scenes of childhood to the cries of a people in captivity, Morawetz provides the listener with refined music having emotional power.
