Canadian Song Cycles

To Music: Canadian Song Cycles. With Wanda Procyshyn, soprano. Carleton Sound,


Collaborator with Wanda Prochshyn in recording of nine song cycles by Canadian composers, never previously recorded. Excerpts from Reviews include: 1) Richard Todd of Ottawa Citizen, 11/9/2010 – 4 stars. “…there is likable and engaging music here, expertly sung by Procyshyn and sympathetically accompanied by Keillor. Only two of the nine composers represented in this collection are living. …The late Ottawa composer, Patrick Cardy, contributes a fine cycle called Autumn and John Weinzweig’s modernistic Of Time and the World is especially intriguing.” Jane Leibel in CAML Review 38/2 (August 2010) – “Carleton Sound is to be commended for the release of this important album of previously unrecorded Canadian song cycles that features the versatile gifts of soprano Wanda Procyshyn and pianist Elaine Keillor. To Music is a rich compilation of songs, dating from 1904 to 2002, by a distinguished lineup of composers. … Their performances are enchanting.”
