A leading advocate of contemporary music for harp, Judy Loman is joined in this recording by the Orford String Quartet, recognized as one of the finest chamber ensembles Canada ever produced. This program of four works, three for harp and string quartet and one for solo harp, blends mythology with evocative musical imagery and intense lyricism as represented by three of Canada's most active composers.

"I certainly recommend this production: the pieces are all interesting, the performances and production values are uniformly excellent, and the bilingual liner notes are generous." - Kevin Bazzana, Fanfare

"The performances are excellent. Loman is a brave wizard who extends the boundaries of harp playing... Finally, the superb engineering places the recording in the audiophile class." - Richard Perry, CD Review
