Programme Note:
When I first began researching the folk music of Ontario I was apprehensive about being able to find sufficient material to justify the effort. I shouldn't have worried though, because like the great Canadian folklorist Edith Fowlkes, I quickly discovered that the only reason Ontario was not known for its traditional music was that no-one had bothered to look. By contrast it turns out the province has a long musical history, adapting songs from its varied heritage of First Nations (Ojibway and Cree), French and British folk music. In Ontario Sketches I’ve taken some of this traditional music and set it in a series of musical "stories" told by the orchestra.The popular hymn known as the Huron Carol, the first Christmas carol written in North America, is the basis for this third Ontario Sketch, which also uses an Ojibway dream song. The cold, darkness and isolation of an Ontario winter bring forth the spiritual comfort and warm camaraderie of the Christmas hymn. - Bruno Degazio, August 2016
