Programme Note:
Of Heart and Tide is about the human drama of the sea.  It is the story of a people for whom the sea is a constant presence in their lives. It is the story of Newfoundland  - telling us of the fierce tides that ebb and flow on its shores, of the tragic losses that take place when men sail out in their boats to fish its coastal waters, and of the tears of those who are left to mourn. EJ Pratt  (1882 - 1964)EJ Pratt was one of the most famous Canadian poets of his generation.  He was raised in Newfoundland.  His father was a pastor whose job it was to inform wives and children that their loved ones had perished at sea. Pratt would often accompany him on these outings.
