When I conceived the idea of recording some of my works for the 1997 Year of the Arts in Newfoundland, my first challenge was to decide which pieces to choose. I wanted the CD to have a thematic and unified integrity and with that in mind, the choice was obvious. I have more chamber works for clarinet than for any other instrument, due in great part to my friendship and collaboration with French clarinettist Etienne Lamaison.

"Lyre is a moving and well written collection of contemporary chamber music by one of Canada's brightest composers . . . The result is a haunting collection of music unified by a pervasive feeling of sadness and introspection." - Glenn Colton, St. John's Evening Telegram
