Programme Note:
This, the fourth movement of Ontario Sketches, remembers the glory of the Great Lakes sailing ships, using as its main theme one of the most popular of the Lake shanties, Red Iron Ore. This rousing ballad describes the race of the sailing ship, the E.C. Roberts, as it travels the Lakes to load up on iron ore. The musical contours supporting this melody depict a stormy Lake Huron using an algorithmic process based on ocean wave simulation.
