Hear Morten Lauridsen’s powerful setting of James Agee’s Sure On This Shining Night. Local composer, Christine Donkin, has turned Ogden Nash’s animal limericks into musical comedy. And in the Ottawa premiere of the Emily Carr Suite, Vancouver-based composer Brian Tate, uses the haunting words of artist and writer Emily Carr in his musical depiction of the vastness of the Canadian landscape…and more.
