This recording features the music of renowned Canadian composer John Burge. The thirteen-member chamber ensemble Sinfonia Toronto brings to life Burge's reflections and musical interpretations of Canadian culture and heritage and the sheer beauty of Canada's landscape.

Upper Canada Fiddle Suite is a nostalgic musical journey around the waterways near the Great Lakes. One Sail is a musical reflection on the Canadian landscape and features the artistry of Canadian cellist Shauna Rolston. Flanders Field Reflections musically interprets five phrases taken from John McCrae's famous World War I poem, expressing the extreme emotional gamut of loss, despair, sacrifice, obligation and hope.
