This 1993 Centrediscs release marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Sir Ernest MacMillan, a towering figure in Canada’s musical history and the Canadian Music Centre’s first President.
Presented here is a collection of Sir Ernest’s finest recorded works featuring world-reknowned artists such as Jon Vickers, Andrew Davis and the Amadeus Quartet.
