Although few late 20th- and 21st-century Canadian composers have made song a focus of their output, Derek Holman has become a champion of the art form in his late career and has established a reputation as a composer sympathetic to vocal inflection and poetic nuance. The recital program features a group of artists well known for their dedication to song and chamber repertoire. Tenor Lawrence Wiliford, soprano Mireille Asselin, pianist Liz Upchurch and harpist Sanya Eng perform works included on the first recording by Canadian Art Song Project, entitled Ash Roses. The program highlights a group of Holman’s works written over a twenty-year span that coincides with the composer’s most prolific period of writing art song:
