Programme Note:
"What is life? It is a flash of a firefly in the night. It is a breath of a buffalo in the winter time. It is as the little shadow that runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset."

These are said to be the last words of Crowfoot, the Blackfoot chief, who uttered them as he lay dying in his teepee which overlooked the Bow River, April 25, 1890.
