Canadian composer Harry Freedman’s contribution to choral repertoire was as substantial as it was extraordinary. His choral compositions exhibit a remarkable diversity of stylistic influences that range from rock, jazz and scat singing, to serial techniques, yet he spoke always with his own voice. This recording collects some of Freedman’s best-loved choral works spanning the years 1964-2002.

"The performances on this disc are exquisitely presented as a fitting tribute to this brilliant light [Harry Freedman] of Canadian musical heritage."
- Dianne Wells, Wholenote
