Journey Begun marks the second CD release of composer Carol Ann Weaver, this one featuring her recent vocal compositions. Here is a musical "genre-bender," bringing together a folk / blusey singer, funk / classical pianist, groove / new music guitarist, classical / jazz bassist, and classical string quartet to create new musical fusions which set unique colours for this refreshing collection of Canadian and American poetry.

What the critics say:

Canadian poet Di Brandt calls them both "groundbreaking for translating Mennonite aesthetic values into contemporary experimental terms."

"The appeal of her work is universal, extending beyond conventional musical parameters." - Richard Todd, Ottawa Citizen

"Weaver doesn't often use her jazz voice for frollicking, but for earthy punch. This music is soulful, introspective, accessible, clearly enticing." - Colleen Johnston, The Record (Kitchener)
