Parues au début des années 1980 sur différents disques noirs, ces trois oeuvres maintenant réunies sur un seul disque compact marquent un jalon dans la composition de musique chorale canadienne.

Le compositeur Harry Somers offre trois pieces à l'atmosphère et au caractère différents. Elles vont du lyrisme traditionnel de chant folklorique de Five Songs of the Newfoundland Outports au style paillard et spirituel de l'oeuvre de style cabaret Three Limericks, en passant par le dramatique et atonal Kyrie, procurant à l'auditeur une expérience musicale aussi riche que diverse.

"This collection of music by Toronto's Harry Somers remains one of the finest vocal discs in the Canadian catalogue, with the Elmer Iseler Singers in top form... Would that Somers were more prolific; his music is as good as we have in this country." - William Littler, The Toronto Star
