Canada's Story in Song

Canada's Story in Song

Chants of the Inuit, ballads of French settlers, battle tunes of the British, and songs of Canadian self-rule: singer Alan Mills combines all four to present a rich tapestry of Canadian history in music. Extensive liner notes with full lyrics accompany this collection, which includes and expands upon the material released on Folkways FW03001, O’Canada: A History in Song.
